This recipe is really easy to make. After reading some of the reviews about flavor I decided to use Sun Dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, instead of the plum tomatoes. The flavor was phenomenal. My husband said "don't lose this one" haha
After a long winter this recipe sounded good. It was good ,however,the freshness of tomatoes were not like the summertime tomatoes.
This is a recipe that I love to fix when we have guests. I looks and tastes fancy, but is not too hard to fix. Definitely a keeper.
This was so easy to make and so good that I will definitely make this again. It looks like like it takes longer to make than it does.
Easy to make yet it looks like you spent a lot of time. Great for company. Delicious my husband loved it!
