Had some rapini left, so made up this Mediterranean dish with sun-dried tomatoes, olives, marinated artichoke hearts and parmesan cheese.

Sauteed shallots and red bell peppers were yummy additions added into the dish, which worked deliciously well with the classic Mediterranean ingredients. A touch of fresh lemon juice with zest and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese bound all the flavors together.

A fuss-free and flavorful one pan meal fits a busy day when you don't want to cook up a storm in the kitchen.
