    Bev's Note:

    This recipe is an exercise in simplicity. Don't be dissuaded by the long cooking time, as these juicy Italian beauties only grow more flavorful and caramelized. Serve over hot cooked rice, orzo or couscous to absord all the delicious juices. From The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen

      This is such an attractive addition to your dinner plate. Simple to make and very tasty. I had everything set out buffet style and these gave a lovely splash of color. They disappeared very quickly too.I used fresh Oregano Thanks Bev for a keeper
