This was really incredible. It is so fast and so easy and SO delicious! The only change I made was to add a sprig of fresh rosemary, because I don't like dried. This smelled so incredible while it was cooking, that I believe I actually could have been salivating. I couldn't wait to taste it! And I can't wait to make it again!
