    This is beautiful!!! I recommend adding black olives (chopped) and sprinkle parmesan on top 2 mins before done. Such a great vegetarian dish and I’m a meat eater. Simple food tasting delicious.

    I do bacon lardons and chopped chicken pan fried and add to the mixture. When nearly ready place into bowls first and add parmesan and black olives grill. Then greek yoghurt and chopped parsley and roasted whole clove garlic with french bread and mayonnaise. Thanks for the recipe.
