      Im sorry I could only give this five stars!! It is MUCH BETTER THAN 5 stars!!! This is a beautiful dish... so yummy...with a delicious, savory flavor. The peas are a magnificent touch to this perfect dish. I will be making this regularly... I was so afraid to make this at first.. fearing that I would mess it up LOL...but it was so easy!!!!
