      This is a quick and delicious meal! I made it for two but kept the sauce amounts the same. I used 2 roma tomatoes and left the seeds in. This could be multiplied easily and become a great potluck meal! Thanks so much for sharing!

      This came together relatively easy and it was so good with some garlic rice that I made as a side. I substituted basil for the marjoram, as I didn't have any in the cupboard. We loved the addition of the olives and tomatoes, and we will have this again I guarantee it! Thanks!
