This is taken from a Cooking Light recipe with a few minor changes. I love it because it is easy to prepare, takes few ingredients, looks lovely, and is truly delicious.

Wish I could givethis 10 stars! This dish is both delicious AND easy. The ratio of ingrefients is right-on. (I did add more capers because I LOVE them). Great dish that will please your family. Thanks so much for sharing, MontanaSuz!
