I cooked this for my daughters Italian boyfriend, he was gobsmacked. This dish i have cooked a few times now, it's easy and tasty, very good summer dish when the weather is too hot for a lot of cooking. I would recommend this to anyone. I cooked as per recipe, why change something this good? Thanks for sharing with me, good luck with the Zaar.
