My extremely finicky, picky husband RAVED over this dish. I LOVE recipes that are very simple, yet taste so complex and divine! A definite keeper.

I tried this recipe for girls night out and paired it with another recipe I got off this site - Pesto Chicken. Therefore, I eliminated the chicken from this recipe. The girls loved it and all stated it tasted like something you would get in a fancy restaurant. I loved it. Thanks!

I was just cooking for 2, so I cut it in half, and still had lots left over. I served it with linguine noodles. Very good. It taste like you worked very hard, but it was super easy.
