This is one of the most ridiculously quick meals I’ve come across as a low carber. The prep time is less than 10 minutes and it’s super tasty. But I won’t lie, my kids are not wild about olives and so they’re not hugely wild about this recipe either. But I love it. It’s quick, easy and so very very tasty!
Prep & cooking time is under 40 minutes, which makes it a week day winner!
