Review: We loved it! It was very similar to my shrimp arribbata recipe – so much so that I was worried – but it tasted SO different. Naturally, I liked this one better and Austin liked that one better. Hehe Austin's just not a huge fan of olives and while this dish doesn't have a lot, it has enough to provide that olive flavor so make sure you don't make unless you like olives!
