Top Review by Michelle Berteig

Very easy and good! I used a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and it was fine. In fact, I would hesitate to use less, the dish would be very dry. In the future, I think I will reduce the amount of olives and increase the amount of raisins, strictly for taste preference. Served with rice and plantains. Would definitely make again!
