I've made this twice and it has gone down so well with everyone - I think red wine would work well too to give it a kick, but the flavours of the olives (good Kalamata ones are best) and tomatoes is brilliant!

As someone else said, a great "chuck it all in a pan in the oven" recipe. We used lamb chops with the same cooking time, and they were cooked perfectly.

Another simple, delicious 'throw together' recipe that's packed with flavour. We serve this with cubed roast potatoes that have been rolled in paprika and olive oil.
