I have had this recipe in my "to make" list for awhile and I finally got around to making it. Super easy and tons of flavor. My daughter loved it as well.

My husband had something similar at a restaurant near our house. I served this over rigatoni and it was quite nice. Makes a great starter at a dinner party.
