READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Dreamgoddess

This can be served as a dinner or an appetizer. It is positively amazing. This is my own creation inspired by my favorite dish at a local NJ restaurant. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I have made this several times, and didn't change a thing. My husband loves it so much he says it is better than restaurants!
