This looks so good. My mom used to make something similar to this in a iron skillet. The olives and capers are what attracts me to this recipe and i have several jars of both.

I was surprised that I actually had almost all of these ingredients, all I needed was the lemon and the roasted red peppers, which just happened to be on sale when I went to get them so I bought extra. :)

Oh just as an FYI since you have Aldi's where you live also, get the Italian seasoning that they have in the spice area, that's what I used and it worked well..I always keep about 2-3 bottles on hand since it's so cheap there. :)Confetti9-29
