This is a lovely recipe. It makes a nice change from butter and garlic. It's very easy to make, and the dish is not very heavy despite having cream in it. The lemon gives it a lovely lift. We did have leftovers and the flavors mellowed and blended well. The lemon was not as pronounced as on the first day but a little squeeze from a wedge brings it right back, although it tasted fine without it. Thank you Heather for a great side dish.
Very nice! I fell over this recipe yesterday and I had all the listed fixings except the lemon.....I really enjoyed it and will happily add this to my cookbook!
