I was not impressed with this. The sour cream didn't provide enough liquid to make it saucy.

We thought this meal was quick and easy to make for a weeknight, but was fairly bland despite the olives & cheese. We'd have it again, but are not in a hurry to cook it. We probably wouldn't serve it to company.
