  • We love this recipe! Easy, yummy and healthy! I served it over basmati rice for the family and I ate it without rice and it was great! We added fresh, shredded parmesean cheese and we are looking forward to trying it with crumbled Feta cheese too! - 2/26/13

  • I followed this recipe pretty closely, except I used Kalamata olives, and I added some chives, drained capers, and garlic powder and paprika. The only thing is mine was really soupy, so I wouldn't bother with the cornstarch next time since it didn't thicken it. Overall, still pretty good. Thanks! - 3/26/11

  • It was ok...I made a few changes but didn't really care for it much. I had a lot of leftovers but didn't eat any of them. - 2/18/11

  • I really enjoyed this blend of flavoring. Instead of roma tomatoes I used a can of low sodium diced tomatoes. Served it over whole wheat pasta. - 2/14/11
