I quite enjoyed this and my partner loved it. I've submitted some corrections to the recipe based on following the instructions. I did find that the sauce was a little bit bland. I think that it needs just one more thing added, however I'm not sure what. We served up on rice as suggested, along with steamed artichokes to dip in the sauce.<br/><br/>Thanks for a nice dinner.
