This is one of those meals where I can add just about any and all combinations of leftover veggies in my fridge. Cover it with enough cheese and they'll eat it!

2 cloves garlic, crushed

I also like to add about 1/2 cup of chopped lettuce leaves. And to this batch I had 2 leftover green onions that were about to go bad, so I added those in too.
