  • This is SOOOO delicious! I can’t wait to make it again. It’s really good for a side dish with a meal or just hae it for lunch.

  • LOVE this recipe! As does my whole family (grandma especially!) Always make it with cherry tomatoes. Adds more juice. Also tried a new variation last night that was great – just cherry tomatoes, roasted zucchini (cut in rounds, roasted for 30 minutes and chopped)and white beans.
