Delicious!! My hubby and I really enjoyed this meal. I agree with Tgirl that next time I might try to thicken the sauce a bit, but it was a wonderful meal just as is. We enjoyed the spinach fettuccine along with this, and the honey was the perfect touch! I grow fresh basil, and what a difference the beautiful fresh herbs make, expecially in a dish like this. Thanks so much for this recipe!! Dianne
Definitely a keeper recipe--I might try adding a bit of a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce due to personal preference--but the dish couldn't be more delicious--the sauce has just the right amount of sweetness with the honey-I hope more people try this !
