I found this recipe in the Feb. 1995 issue of Bon Appetit. Make yourself a loaf of Rosemary Focaccia bread to go with it! Bon Appetit says this serves 4--that would be 4 HUGE servings.

      My family says that it was amazing how I could make a dinner so tasty without meat! The combination of havarti cheese and kalamata olives made it seem meaty somehow! Not too spicy with 1/2 tsp of crushed chili, but I wouldn't add more.
