Delicious! The depth of flavors will excite your palate. I followed the ingredient list and changed up the method a bit.

Delicous use of fresh tomatoes and herbs from my garden. Easy to make and flavorful! I used fresh oregano as well....great flavor! Perfect summer meal. I also added some fantastic wild shrimp that I sauteed in a little butter and garlic with a splash of white wine. Didn't need anything else....oh yes finished the wine! Was a hit with the hub"
