This is very yummy, but I had to make a few adjustments to really make the flavours pop. After I had finished making the dish, it had good potential but the flavours were too weak/bland, so I added a clove of garlic and a few tablespoons of a smoked pepper and eggplant spread that I had on hand. That slight change really made this dish amazing, and I'm certainly making it again! This dish has so much potential, and with a bit more, it really blows you away. Thanks for posting! *Made for Spring PAC 2009*
