    Mmm, this was delicious! I don't think it's very authentic, but it sure tastes fantastic! So filling and hearty. The olives added a nice salty flavor and the peas added bursts of sweet freshness. We will omit the tomatoes next time.

    Sooo easy to make. Tastes delicious. My hard to please, picky eater of a husband even liked it! For someone who doesn't like olives very much, they be a bit strong, but great for us!
