Everything's in your pantry for this super easy but flavorful entree. My husband is out of town and a Nor' Easter is heading in and I needed something for dinner. This came together wonderfully. Can easily double, triple, etc. Please note all ingredients are approximate; do not worry about measurements.

I used sliced black olives and a drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil. I used fresh parmesan cheese, grated. This is so yummy and easy to do. Thanks Vicki :) Made for Photo tag

This has become a staple in our house. We always have the ingredients on hand and love the ease of this dish. After a day of skiing it is especially appreciated as either my husband or I can make it (whom ever is the least sore) and both our kids love it! I even like it a room temperature the next day.
