This was so flavorful and satisfying! It did take longer than 30 minutes to make; browning is what added the time. Maybe the heat was too low. I did add the kalamata olives and fresh parsley, added 2 teaspoons dried thyme, in addition to the oregano, and used San Marzano diced tomatoes. Did not add the salt called for in the recipe, because olives and canned tomatoes have so much already. I entered the ingredients on myfitnesspal to get the calorie content and it was over 500. Where the discrepancy was, I don't know. Still, it's so delicious! It's good to know it fits in a mindful diet. I like a carb with a wonderful sauce like this, so I served this with half a pita to soak up all the delicious sauce.
