      Very good! My sister made this for dinner last night and was very thrilled when I told her that it was great :-) She's not one to measure ingredients accurately, and sometimes she just throws it all in, but she DID follow your guidelines, at least! She omitted the almonds, and reduced the garlic, which she isn't very fond of. I'll definitely like to try this myself too!
