WOW! This recipe is outstanding! And so easy!! I wasn't too sure about how the black olives would be in it, but the dish was soooo flavorful. I will make this again and again. I garnished mine with a little freshly grated parmesan cheese. Wonderful!
This is an excellent dish! I served it with white rice. My husband hates tomatoes but really loved everything about this dish!
