I need to bookmark this thread - GREAT suggestions and babetoo, your meal sounds delish!

I really don't think you need a yellow veg, but a medley of red peppers and squash would work, as others have suggested.

Oops, yes you're right garlic/scampi.
I didn't think of the peppers and squash. Good idea, even on the side.

these recipes sound really good. I might try them later on for myself. We should have a place where people can place their collection of recipes they wanna share
