    It was great, my daughter-in-law loved it, cooked it for my son too. I added black olives and served with garlic bread.  -  28 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is very good - an excellent summer meal. Fast, easy and fresh. A splash of white balsamic, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of red pepper flakes would take this over the top. I would also think that a healthy sprinkling of Parmesan would be wonderful.  -  10 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
