This recipe looks very easy to whip together when you don't have a lot of hands - on time to cook, and I love the aromatic fresh basil flavor! There is one thing I'm confused about though. The recipe just says 1/2 can of olive oil - could you specify a cup measurement or how many ounces is used? The olive oil I buy always comes in a glass bottle, so I am unsure how much to use.

Where in the world would one purchase olive oil in a can? Do you mean cup?
