This was magnificant, i followed recipe exactly. Didn't state what type of vinegar was used, so i used red wine. I really liked how the flour portian made a sort of 'gnocci' texture in there. Definately want to make sure you break that mixture up so you don't just get one big chunk. Thanks for a great recipe, can't wait to make it again.
