This recipe may seem complicated, but the taste is worth it. After making this recipe I took the leftovers to work and my co-workers loved it. Try it. I'm sure you'll love it too.

For just the 2 of us, I cut this recipe in half, & we thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful dish, so much so, in fact, that now I want to make it the next time I a dinner for special company! Very, very nice! Thanks for this keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
