This easy recipe was a nice find for PAC-Fall '08. Because of the small number dining I reduced the recipe. I also elected to replace the tomato with a red bell pepper since I would have leftovers and used black olives. Next time I might add a few more veggies for additional color, but they aren't needed. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

This was fabulous! I did add some extra veggies because I was using it as an entree, but I didn't alter it too much. What a simple but tasty recipe! Thank you so much for sharing. Reviewed for PAC 2008.
