This came out so good even DH loved it! That's saying a lot since food doesnt turn him on much. I followed the recipe pretty closely but added sliced black olives on top. The taste was awesome! Next time I will make it with a bit less cornmeal, though. Thank you for a fantastic recipe, it's a keeper!
