AMBROSIA ... cool name for cookbook; fitting name for this dish! Quick, Easy, and DELICIOUS! These disappeared almost before I had a chance to taste them! A definite winner. To save time I tossed them in a heated, oiled wok then tossed in a bit of water. Done in 5 minutes! Just enough time to mix up the sauce. Thanks for a keeper!
