    This was great! My mom makes something similar, but asked for this recipe because she likes it better. Her recipe uses dill and she sautes onions with the garlic. I added the onions to this recipe and the only other thing a did different was to use canned petite diced tomatoes. My daughter kept walking by the frying pan and dipping french bread in the juices. I didn't have any sticking problems like some others, but I used my electric frying pan so I could control the heat better. Thanks for the recipe!!  -  14 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh my gosh - this is one of the most sublime dishes I've ever had! Absolutely wonderful flavor. Once I put sun dried tomatoes in it but it didn't give it anymore oomph. The Kalamata olives and garlic are all the flavor it needs. Kids and husband wouldn't touch it but that just left more for me!!! Will make this until I die!  -  07 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was unbelievably simple, unbelievably good. Gutsy flavour - my kind of food. The best extra virgin olive oil is absolutely necessary here. Although I could easily make a meal of this with salad and flat bread, I had extra kids in the house and so coupled it with Zucchini Patties and some pilaf. Everyone ate everything! Make sure you have plenty of good bread on the table to mop up the delicious juices.  -  10 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
