This one sounds so yummy. I make a very similar recipe and usually top it with chicken breast slices too. My recipe doesn't call for sun dried tomatoes but I sure bet that really adds to the dish!

It's very simple indeed, will try this too but am not sure I can easily buy some sun-dried tomatoes here. :( Will have to ask my bro to send over here from US. LOL.
