A nice change of pace

Top Review by Susan B.

Loved it! I think this recipe is definitely as good as your ingredients. I made it with a parmesan from the jar. Next time I will use freshly grated as the recipe says. I used LARGE pinches of the herbs, we like things flavorful, and I added chopped tomato and black olives. Thought about Red Pepper but passed on it, though may try another time. Thanks for a great recipe that would go with a large variety of Summer Fare. This will become a Tried and True at my house!
