Olives, oregano and artichoke hearts boost flavor in this colorful and hearty meatless main dish. It goes together in minutes with convenient pantry items. Try a little feta cheese on top for something extra-special. Elaine Ober - Brookline, Massachusetts

so easy to make and very tasty. the stewed tomatoes were on the sweet side so i needed to add a little more lemon juice

Great flavors & very easy to throw together! Definitely use no salt added tomatoes & chickpeas, as the olives and artichokes will have plenty!
