With out a doubt one of the biggest hits with my family and friends. Found it on the website of the pioneer woman courtesy of pinterest. The only thing I did differently was to add some chopped garlic into the olive oil I dribbled on top. One other time I used chopped chives no rosemary. Can't wait to try it sprinkled with parmigiana cheese.
