      I have been trying my hand at some new ideas for dinner and this one looked so good. The flavor of the sauce along with the meat and spices blended so well together and tasted fabulous! My DS's both loved it and I got the thumbs up from my DH which means I will add it to my favorites to have again. I served it with a lovely Greek Salad and Garlic Bread, and it was all good! Oops, almost forgot. I substituted Parmesan cheese because I couldn't find the one called for in the directions, and it was a great substitute.
