We've been trying to eat a little better around our house the last few weeks.  I have never been much of a healthy eater.  My mom always called me "the fast food queen" growing up, so these have been some major changes for me!  My family, including myself, loved this recipe and I felt much better eating this rather than the hamburger my body has been craving so much. :)
My darling husband even cut and stuffed the pitas so he could eat them sooner!
