This is a very good recipe. Dh and guests enjoyed this dinner (DH picked out the broccoli). I thought the lemon juice set off the entire dish to good advantage. The flavors and textures work together very well and this one recipe is a full meal, whats not to like? Parm cheese was passed in a side bowl for each to add as they chose.
