Just had this for the second time - obvious that I like it. Modified it for one and cooked in toaster oven. Also toasted walnuts a bit before adding to sauce. Thanks.

I offered a last-minute dinner for a couple of my friends one night and was desperate for a good recipe. I found this one and it really ended up being fantastic. I substituted shaved almonds for the walnuts and toasted them before adding them to the sauce. Definitely a winner!

I cut the recipe in half and it was great (or so my friend said) she eats no meat, very little poultry or fish and is very fussy when she does have it. She wants this one again. The only change I made was to sub pecans for walnuts! Thanks Tweeky
