    This is a great weekday dinner recipe. The flavors are really delicious and, if you have any leftovers, this dish gets even better with time.  -  08 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Um, maybe the item that was MISSING was the OLIVES? If there are only 5 ingredients, leaving one out and then complaining is just silly. This recipe was delish: I put more peppers and more olives and only marinated an hour and it was Great! WHOLE family loved it!  -  08 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really, really good. I sliced the peppers instead of leaving them whole to make the recipe a little spicier. I also serve this with toasted baguette slices as an appetizer. YUM!  -  27 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
