Absolutely wonderful!! Will definitely be adding this to my family's rotation of dinners. I am not an experienced chef, so it took me some time to prepare this dish, but it was worth the wait. I will definitely make this again but on a weekend night when I generally have more time. Also, I made the sauce associated with this recipe and it was wonderful as well!
