      There wasn't much creaminess to the sauce. Pretty dish but mediocre taste.

      Wow, was this ever a hit at dinner. I really prefer roasted Brussels sprouts, so since the oven was going anyway... I used #84473 and #56103 would work as well. Delicious, papergoddess.

      I served this at Thanksgiving with produce from my garden and it is absolutely as pretty as it is tasty. Everyone raved and I will make it again and again. Thanks!
