Very tasty, we thought. I did do a few swaps, based on what I did (and didn't) have: I used lemon juce from a bottle, used ground sage, frozen asparagus cuts (steamed in microwave, then added at the end), and 2 slices of deli ham, chopped. I served it over brown rice, and we didn't need a side dish. This was quick and easy to make after work. I included an action shot of the sauce reducing (you can even see all the tiny bubbles) haha. Thanks for posting this!
