Great easy, quick and delicious dinner! I didn't have tomato puree, so I used tomato sauce, which worked fine. I also doubled the amount of fresh basil and olives and added about 1/2 cup of mushrooms and about a tsp of fresh ground black pepper. I also added about a Tbsp of parmesan to the sauce while it was cooking to add depth to the sauce flavor. All in all, it was a great dish and I'll definitely be making it again!
