I am all about easy, fast recipes since I get home from work so late. I am leery to post recipes like this because, well, they can get boring... but, we had this last night for dinner, I have to say, it was pretty darn yummy. It was super easy and quick... plus we have easy leftovers for tonight. I tore it out of my Southern Living mag. last month, and finally made it. You should try... I think you'll enjoy without much hassle.

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
