    Pagan's Note:

    This is a huge favorite at my house. There are never any left overs, and this is one of those meals which calls the family members home on nights when it's served. This goes wonderfully with cheese biscuits. This was requested (kinda) by another member. Cooking time is long to accomodate the mincing of the vegetables/spices. This is also wonderful with fish! And a natural with chicken. If you want to try this with chicken, increase the rosemary to 1 full teaspoon and definitely add the garlic!

      We all loved this! The mix of the spices with the sauce was delicious! I will be making this again! Just remember if you don't like it spicy tone done the cayenne. Thanks Fiendish_Dramaturgy
