Recipe by Manami
Use a soft goat cheese to create a very smooth sauce. Serve immediately. Serve with a brown rice pilaf and a nice green vegetable; broccoli, asparagus or green beans. A salad of sliced red tomatoes & red onions and some kind of crusty bread paired with a nice bottle of sauvignon blanc. Your meal will be awseome! Cooking Light, 01/2005.
