I made this exactly as written and it was SO amazingly good! Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed this as it came... but also loved it served over a green salad. The sauce ends up almost tasting like a creamsicle. And then when you add the crunchy pecans on top... WOWSERS! Perfect amount of everything! I will be making this again and again. Even after two days in the fridge, it was still phenomenal! This goes into my permanent book! Made for PAC Spring 2010
