    Beautiful presentation and so flavourful! I like to serve buttered orzo and steamed asparagus alongside. The aparagus tastes so good dipped into the sauce.

      The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and after reading Rita's review, the flour was cut in half. The sauce was plenty thick. The sauce is delicious with rice and went well with Ginger Carrots and Broccoli With Sesame Seeds.

      This is full of sweet orange flavor slightly scent with spice. Nice crunch from the almonds! But I did add almost 1 cup of water to it and the sauce still ended up very thick. Thanks!
