This is a fantstic dish and one of my personal favorites. It's even better when you let the flavors soak overnight and reheat it the next day.

I'm also a fan of hearty meals with tons of meat and cheese, but I'm getting a huge I thought I would try this recipe. Fantastic. I left out the olives and put zucchini in it. I've never tried capers before, but I would definitely leave those out next time. They have a flowery salty taste and I didn't like them at all. Good thing I was able to pick them out.

Highly recommend this one. Try it.
