I saw this recipe in Parents magazine.  The original recipe was not completely vegetarian, so I changed it a little bit.

  1. I got around 23 pieces for this measurement. My husband and I loved it. A different twist to the regular pizza.
My Notes:
  1. This was a bit salty, so you may want to increase the amount of pepper if you want it spicy.
  2. I suggest to cool the baked Stromboli even for 10 minutes, so that slicing will not be difficult and you will also get neat slices.

I was surprised and thrilled when my friend Dee, sent me a mail telling that her friend Yamuna is a regular visitor to my blog and she has tried the Asparagus and Pepper Stromboli and has sent a picture of it, telling that it has become her family's favorite.  The slices have come out perfectly.  Thank you very much dear Yamuna.  You really made my day!
