This would have been a 5 star recipe for us had it not been for the Italian seasoning. It just didn't go with the other spices in our opinion. I'll be making this again but without the Italian seasoning. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
Not awful, but very dull and boring. Perhaps blue cheese or feta would perk it up. Maybe a splash of lemon juice. Made for Fall PAC 2012
