This was great! My mom makes something similar, but asked for this recipe because she likes it better. Her recipe uses dill and she sautes onions with the garlic. I added the onions to this recipe and the only other thing a did different was to use canned petite diced tomatoes. My daughter kept walking by the frying pan and dipping french bread in the juices. I didn't have any sticking problems like some others, but I used my electric frying pan so I could control the heat better. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

I found the flavours weren't that complex and I needed to bulk it out a bit with some vegetarian bouillon granules and also topped with some sprinkled feta cheese. However very easy and good for a quick midweek meal. Read More

This was unbelievably simple unbelievably good. Gutsy flavour - my kind of food. The best extra virgin olive oil is absolutely necessary here. Although I could easily make a meal of this with salad and flat bread I had extra kids in the house and so coupled it with Zucchini Patties and some pilaf. Everyone ate everything! Make sure you have plenty of good bread on the table to mop up the delicious juices. Read More

Oh my gosh - this is one of the most sublime dishes I've ever had! Absolutely wonderful flavor. Once I put sun dried tomatoes in it but it didn't give it anymore oomph. The Kalamata olives and garlic are all the flavor it needs. Kids and husband wouldn't touch it but that just left more for me!!! Will make this until I die! Read More

Fantastic! I can't believe the complexity of flavors in such a simple dish. Warning to those who don't know what kalamatas are - these are not like black olives from a can. They are extremely pungent, so if you don't like intense flavors, you may not like this dish. This is not a failure of the recipe, but your own preference, and you shouldn't rate the recipe down for it. I'm thrilled at having an exciting new potato recipe in my collection! Read More
