A very tasty and easy side dish. My husband likes this topped with a grating for parmesan cheese. Toasted walnuts are also a nice touch for presentation.

What a fantastic recipe. I followed recipe to the word and was not disappointed. I made this as a side dish with the Lamb Shank with Garlic and Port Wine from this website. Recipe can easily be served as a main dish. I think that a good alteration would be to add some parmesan shavings and rocket leaves.
