Top Review by Tisme

This is a really good recipe. I made as per recipe with no changes, and the only problem I had....was not enough sauce. The family loved the sauce and wanted more so..... Next time I will double the sauce ingredients. But this is one great dish! The family really enjoyed this Jan. A great meal that is tasty and v ery esy with little effort that makes for a fantsatic dinner.
