This was so quick and easy to make. I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. It also looked very nice and presentable for formal parties! This recipe is a definite keeper even for regular weeknight family meal with my kids and my husband. Thanks so much for this recipe Stephanie!
