Remove from the oven; sprinkle with cheese. Add remaining ingredients; toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper.



Wheat berries are wheat before it's been turned into flour. They cook up chewy and nutty and are a hearty alternative to rice. (If you can't find wheat berries, substitute farro or barley.) To cook: In a large saucepan heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add 1 cup uncooked wheat berries and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir until toasted, about 2 minutes. Add 4 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium-low heat. Simmer, covered, until the grains are tender, about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Drain any excess water.
