This is a super quick meal full of wonderful flavors. I reduced the recipe for 1 serving omitted the red pepper flakes and added some chopped Calamata olives and a little butter, other than that made as written. Thanks for posting this great recipe. Made for ratherbeswimmin's win of the Football Pool, week 2. Thanks!
