We'll use more goat cheese if we make this again. The neufchatel really neutralizes the flavor of the goat cheese as written.

This was a nice, simple dish that was quick to prepare on a hectic week night. We liked it. I substituted cream cheese for neufchatel, but otherwise followed all directions as stated. I thought the taste of the goat cheese and fresh lemon really came through in this dish. Thanks!
