      I think this dish has a lot of potential, and I'm sure I'll will be make it again. Before attempting this again, I'll have to figure out what seasonings to use, that will work for me, to make it more flavorful or lot better for me to do! Anyway, excellent to do a SCRATCH on recipes here. The more I play with my food, the more I love cooking, to make a recipe that will work for me, that is!! Than I can do my happy food dance!! I've will added this to my recipe book with my additions. Now I have two recipes. Your daughter learned this recipe while taking a cooking classes... Good for her and, I too found the sauce very light and fragrant.Thank YOU!! Grpa
