    susie cooks's Note:

    This is so wonderful!! No meat in this recipe so it is a great recipe for everyone. I do not know where the original recipe came from as I got it from a friend. Instead of the parmesan cheese, you can substitute Manchego cheese.

      I really enjoyed this tonight! I served with Green Chili and Monterey Jack Quesadillas. I lovee the taste of the olives and really enjoyed the light crunch of the pine nuts. Thank you! I forgot the Parmesan cheese, but it didn't matter. It was all good!
