Creamy Barley With Tomatoes and Greens

“A vegetarian main dish (all in one meal) that is fast and fabulous. . .reminds me of risotto. . .definitely a comfort food! The original recipe called for 2 ounces taleggio cheese (stirred in at the end) but it is totally not necessary! So good! Recipe from Real Simple Magazine, Feb 2010.”
