Recipe by Alisa Lea

I got a calendar for 2007 with a recipe and food picture on each month. This is the first one that caught my eye!

Delish! Served with a side of whole wheat pasta tossed in olive oil and parmesan. I usually just do black olives, but the green were a nice addition. My bf doesn't even like green olives, but he sure did gobble them up. Thanks!
