      This is indeed very easy to prepare, a little initial preparation, then everything goes into the oven and looks after itself. This gave me a lovely rich casserole, redolent with the flavours of tomatoes and fresh herbs, and a pleasant piquancy from the sausage and the bell pepper. The chicken was tender, as was the pepper, and the olives are a marvellous addition. I served this with Garlic Butter Rice for a delicious family supper, thank you, Um Safia! I would say it is a generous 4 servings, I served four adults, and have at least another two, even three portions, left over! Made for Ramadan Tag Game, August 2009 NA*ME
