This is a very taste recipe and it is easy!! I made a few modifications. I used one cup of olive oil and next time I will reduce that to 3/4-1/2 cup. I also use kalamata greek olives rather than black olives. Excellent dish which can be used as a base for many variations. Read More

Decrease the amount of oil! Very heavy taste. Not your average pasta sauce recipe don't use this unless you are looking for something off the wall. This recipe is not for everyone don't serve it to company. Read More

WOW! Colorful flavorful unique. This is outstanding but I had to modified it for my family. My changes were; Omit olives. Reduce sundried tomatoes and canned tomatoes by at least half. Add fresh spinach fresh mushrooms artichoke hearts & one diced shallot if you have it. I used goat cheese but it wasn't Feta. Perfect for Lenten meals and terrific dish for veggie daughter. Will put this on the "Active List" Thanks Patti. Read More

I had high hopes for this recipe but it didn't work out for me. My coworkers didn't even touch it and I found it had an odd taste. I followed the recipe exactly so I don't know what happened. I doubt I'll be keeping the leftovers. Thanks for letting me try though. Read More

This was OK. We kind of made it by accident thinking it was something else. We left out the black olives (personal taste) and added extra bell peppers and fresh tomatoes. It wasn't bad but I didn't love it chilled. Read More
