Second time I've made this to OUTSTANDING reviews! My hunny takes my cooking for granted and rarely makes a fuss out of any meal, but this is one of the few he really comments on and wants again! Easy too; both times have made after a long days work! I'm also my worst critic and I could eat this again and again! Serve it with either a green salad or veggie on the side...very filling. Yum, yum, yum!
