Top Review by Jenny Sanders

I was impressed at how quickly this went together for a tasty version of a classic dish. I did need to add a little cornstarch as it would otherwise have been a little too runny, and I also added a little papprika for extra richness of flavour. Very nice; thanks hudelei!
