  1. Looks delicious - and EASY!!! Thank you!!!

  2. Yummy!! It reminds me of a Spanish Tortilla (except for the absence of eggs) that we enjoyed as Tapas in Spain one time. Can't wait to try this.

  4. That's a great recipe using simple ingredients and no doubt giving a delicious taste. I make something similar but I haven't tried it with tomatoes in before.
