- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water

This is an easy-to-make, very tasty recipe. Substituting yellow, red, & green pepper for the olives adds color and a slightly different flavor. Great for Lenten meals!

I'd blame the olives: they are LOADED with sodium.....or if you didn't use the reduced-sodium soup, the combo of the two was too much for your other ingredients.

I made this recipe today and found it too salty. My husband liked it, but what went wrong?
