Mediterranean One-Dish Meal Recipe

I came up with this recipe one night when I was improvising with what I had on hand. I love to make simple, healthful, one-dish meals with lots of vegetables. Feta and Greek olives give this one a depth of flavor people seem to love! —Donna Jesser, Everett, Washington

My husband called this one "keeper"! I didn't have sausage links but substituted 1/2 lb. turkey breakfast sausage which I cooked with the onion. I also substitiuted canned tomatoes with onion, garlic and oregano because that is what I had on hand. I think you could also substitute spanish olives for the greek with only a little change in the overall taste (though I would recommend the greek if you can splurge on the cost!). This is definitely an easy recipe I will be making again!
