This recipe was given to me by a friend who would burn water if she tried to cook. :) She took a cooking class, and this is one of the dishes they made. Very easy, and VERY good! (Albeit a bit fattening)

I was a little nervous AFTER I noticed only one review, at that point I had already started making it. But no worries, this truly is deserving of five stars- It really came out wonderful, it tasted like I didn't make it, like a really good cook did!<br/><br/>Thanks for sharing this! If you're considering it- it's too easy not to try it :)
