I came up with this recipe one night while 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

  • 1/4 cup Greek olives
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
