    This is one of my favourite recipes! After cooking it several times, I have varied it slightly. I a use trio of tomatoes use (Kumato, Cherry & Truss) and also mix the cheese (half colby and half cottage cheese) It's brilliant and a family favourite. Big Smile

    Not sure if you come here to check comments but I'm curious as to what a "can" of anchovies might be, how much would it weigh, or how many fillets?? I've seen various sizes of jars in the shops. I'd love to try this. I'm also not seeing the anchovies in the directions, are they and the olives only used for the top (decoration/taste)?  Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)
