This is a keeper. I reduced the recipe to 1/3 only serving 2 people. I used grape tomatoes quartered and shallots instead of the onion. It was great, should have made more! Worked well with Chicken Souvlaki (40226).

As others said, I cut the oil way down and used 1 lb can of stewed tomatoes instead of fresh. Came out great.
