A really wonderful recipe! Its was so easy to make, and it was spectacular! I omitted the mushrooms and added garlic... delicious! Thank you for the recipe!


this recipe is really wonderful. It gets 5 stars for ease of preparation and another 5 stars for fantastic flavor. I did follow the advice of some other reviewers, I used chicken broth instead of water, added a couple of cloves of garlic and reduced the salt for 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon...*****


This was so easy & yummy. I used 1 Tbl of Olive Oil instead of butter, chicken broth instead of water & the spicy green olives from the olive bar at the grocery store. It was spicy & yummy. My boyfriend told me we should have this at least once a week! And it took almost no effort and even less if you use frozen choppen onion & green pepper.
