My notes on this recipe:

This is a delightful dish. The flavors are amazing and it comes together quite fast. Perfect for dinner or lunch. Would work nicely for a dinner party or modified for a night alone!

I’ve been trying a lot more Mediterranean dishes lately and you can expect to see more of them here. They are such a pleasure to make and I really enjoy using the fresh herbs that the recipes often call for- using fresh herbs really is a whole other experience because of scent and the way it permeates throughout the whole kitchen when they are heated.
