      Forgot to mention..I always serve with egg noodles or fettucini, it seems to me that the pasta cuts the richness moreso than rice. Call me crazy! :) For some reason my first comments didn't get posted...loved this dish, as have all my guests I've served it to, and there have been numerous. Have been asked for the recipe every time. Thank you Kel
