As part of The Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was sent three bottles of Crisco Olive Oils to sample (Pure Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Light Tasting Olive Oil). I was excited because we use alot of olive oil at home between cooking and using it for salad dressing (oil and red wine vinegar). Crisco is the brand I typically purchase for my other cooking oils but I had yet to use their olive oil line. You can visit their website for more information about their olive oils.
This is one of those easy recipes, perfect for a weeknight!!!
