  1. Good job of making a lighter version of this classic! This reminds me it's been ages since I've had a cheesesteak - time to again, don't you think? ;-)

  2. Yes ... I think . A quick meal you can enjoy in the garden or patio , depending on the weather . :)

  3. Oh how I adore Philly Cheesesteaks Nee. I agree with John your lighter version sounds just as delicious!
