A ragout (ra-GOO) is a well-seasoned stew-like dish; this one, unlike most,
is meatless. When cooked, the potatoes should be so soft that they fall
apart; this helps thicken the dish.

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skilled over medium-high heat. Add
onion, and saute 10 minutes or until soft, stirring frequently. Add tomato;
cook 10 minutes or until the liquid almost evaporates, stirring frequently.
Add potato and next 6 ingredients (potato through bay leaves); bring to
boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 40 minutes or until potato is tender,
stirring occasionally. Stir in olives; cook an additional 5 minutes.
Discard thyme and bay leaves. Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4
