    Koriander's Note:

    This has been at the top of our favorites since 1991. Slightly labor intensive to make, but well worth it. Very light - the fontina white sauce with nutmeg and dry vermouth, along with all the other ingredients, make this a delectable choice. Great for a private romantic dinner or if you're having dinner guests who like seafood. Using a food processor makes the fine chopping easy. Recipe originally came from Sunset's Casserole cookbook.
