Expert Tips

  • Sun-dried tomatoes add a robust meaty flavor and a bit of chewiness to this dish. You can add a cup of finely chopped seeded fresh tomatoes instead of the sun-dried tomatoes if you want.
  • Serve with a large crisp tossed green salad dressed with an olive oil-balsamic vinaigrette, along with slices of French baguette. A glass of red wine makes this a perfect meal.
