if you want to make this dish really italian, put much less olive oil, NO vinegar and add in the oil, while it's hot, a handful of breadcrumbs and chopped black olives (plus tomatoes, basil and pepper flakes). You will love it!!!



The 1/2 cup EVOO was a bit too oily for my family. Reduced the oil to 1/3 cup. I also added 2 cups of cooked chicken breast to make a complete meal. Delicious!



I substitute a large can of diced tomatoes because I like the extra sauciness created by the juices. 2-3 Tbs of oil is plenty for me. I mince 1 clove of garlic and thinly slice 1-2 more and fry them for about a minute before adding the tomatoes.
