Wonderful! I over cooked mine and it was still wonderful! I think that 40 minutes was a bit too long for my oven though. I will make this again and try only 30 minutes. Despite it being over cooked, we ate it and enjoyed it. The texture is great! Soft and crumbly but not too grainy. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
