This was very good, light, and easy. I set out to make a half-recipe, but ended up using the full amounts of fresh herbs, olives (quartered), and garlic. Next time, I'll also use the full amount of mushrooms. It's a recipe that you can "eyeball," it doesn't really require exact measurements. And I think it would go well with additions of chicken, shrimp, capers, parsley, spinach, onions, and lots of other things, depending on your tastes.
