This is a good empty pantry family dish. made it last night and since i have morningsickness nothing tastes that good :) but there were hardly any leftovers and nobody complained about the celery, which is amazing! This looked pretty, tasted good, and was a good, filling, (if somewhat high fat!) dinner...
