Serving ideas

Straight from the oven with crusty bread or toasted sourdough

Great as a BBQ side dish

Allow to cool and toss through mixed salad leaves. Add cooked, cooled pasta for a more substantial meal.

You can also leave out the anchovies for a vegetarian version of this dish, or substitute the mini bocconcini balls for crumbled feta if you prefer.
