This recipe is the perfect easy and cheap Sunday evening dinner. If I had it I would have definitely added cheese on top, just keep in mind adding cheese would increase the cost and increase the calories. One thing I added that I didn’t include in the recipe was a little dash of cayenne pepper. You are welcome to try this, I tend to add cayenne pepper to all of my recipes so unless it’s absolutely essential I won’t include it in the ingredient list. Cayenne pepper is great for adding an extra pop of spice and it also boosts your metabolism!
