I put this together tonight when there was nothing appetizing to eat at home, and I didn't feel up to any sort of elaborate cooking. This makes a fantastic, light, summer meal on its own, or can be served with warm garlic bread. Adjust the spices to suit your taste.
- Combine all the ingredients except the parmesan cheese in a saucepan; mix well.
- Heat over a high flame, stirring occasionally, until all the water has evaporated (around 5 minutes).
- Remove from flame, transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, if desired.
- Serve hot with warm garlic bread, or a tall glass of fruit juice.
