      This was a keeper we both enjoyed it. I had a few pieces left over and figured that we could have them for lunch , but no we ate them. I served this with buttered small potatoes and warm spinach salad.The balance of the sauce I will use for some fish. Thanks for posting. Made for zwt6 for the Xtra hot dishes
