This was really tasty and fairly easy to make. It ended up a little bit dry and difficult to toss, but because I quartered the recipe and altered it a bit (using small cooked shrimp) I may have messed up the oil quantities a bit. All in all very tasty.
OOHHH this is outstanding! I halved the recipe for the 2 of us and it made four generous servings. I love shrimp but they really are not necessary for this dish- so if you have a family member who does not like shrimp you can make this and just add the shrimp on the plates of those who want it. I can't wait for tomorrows lunch!
