Feeling romantic? This is a simple but impressive dish for you and your special someone to enjoy, without you spending the day slaving away in the kitchen. UUMMMM! Also great for the weeknight rush of family dinners! From Southern Living, Feb. 1986.

Made this a couple days after New Year's Eve since we had leftover champagne going to waste. It was very easy to prepare and very tasty. My fiancé made a comment to the effect that we were eating gourmet that night.
