This is a favorite in our house.  It's one of Jill's favorite vegetarian dishes and I love it too.  I was inspired by a favorite restaurant in Santa Monica called Il Forno Trattoria.

Need a waffle iron? I paid $40 in 2020 for my first new waffle iron in 30 years - The Presto 03510 Ceramic Flipside Belgian Waffle Maker. It's been a giant upgrade and I highly recommend it! Get it on Amazon here!
