“Long ago, when we were in a "Gourmet Group", I served something very similar to this, only it had another layer of something. I recall it was green, but not the veggie nor the prep. This serves well with almost any meat, and being self-contained, stays attractive on the plate. Low fat ricotta and sour cream can be substituted.”
