This dish was alright. I thought it would be better as it had capers and olives, two of my favorites. However, it seemed to be missing something.

This was EXCELLENT! This had so many great flavors going on and everything went well together. Wonderful blend of textures too. I used the bacon grease and a splash of olive oil to sautee the on...

this dish was so good and so easy to prepare. i didn't bother with cleaning the skillet after frying the bacon...i just used the bacon grease and threw the rest of the ingredients in the same s...

Easy to make and delicious. I cut the olive oil to 1/4 cup, and used 1 lb turkey sausage instead of bacon. I've made with both black & green olives vs black olives & capers. Both are great! ...
