I used shredded parmesan cheese as I didn't have any dried cranberries. I can only find sweetened dried cranberries in the grocery store and I try to stay away from the sugar as I am diabetic. This dish was very appealing in appearance and hubby and I both enjoyed it. Will make for a family dinner the next time as it is very flavorful, fast, and very delicious.
