I just decided it's time to make something not so heavy, comfort is one thing, but trying to take off unwanted weight is alot of work! So this is light, very flavorful and a great side dish if you wish!

 1 lb Portabello Mushrooms
 2 Fresh Plum Tomatoes
 Parmesan Cheese
 1 clove minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
fresh parsley sprigs
a pinch of rosemary
 1/4 cup Marsala wine
 Italian flavored bread crumbs
 salt, pepper to taste
 Tin foil
 2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
 cooking spray

Spread a large piece of tin foil out on a cookie sheet. Spray with lightly with cooking spray.  Start with mushrooms, add zucchini, sliced tomato. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, pepper and herbs. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and more bread crumbs, drizzle olive oil over the top. Around the sides and bottom of the foil add wine, seal tightly. Place  insdie the oven on 350 till tender or on the grill, for around 15 to 20 minutes till the veggies softened. Serve immediately.

  3. Haha. Yeah, I have my annual physical right after the holidays (stupid move) and hate it every year when they tell me my weight is up, so this is a nice meal to counter that.
