From Everyday Food, haven't yet tried it, but I think it would be nice to add some fresh parsley.

Very good and easy meal to prepare. Followed recipe except when i went to dice the red pepper i found it not to be fresh so i had to sub with sun dried tomatoes which i am sure altered the taste but i know did not break the recipe. Definitly wait to salt the dish as i think it has such good flavor and with the addition of the lemon you wont need the salt. Served this over a toasted piece of garlic bread...delicious.
