This was such an amazing recipe and was so easy too! Everyone in the house ate it including one really picky eater. It smelled so yummy and looked beautiful. I served it over Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and it worked together so well, this is now a staple at my house. Thank you for posting such a great recipe!
