yummm! this was delicious, lennie - thank you! i made it pretty much exactly according to the recipe, and it got rave reviews all around. I really liked the flavour the balsamic vinegar added. I will certainly be making this again! (and it was really easy too :)

Great recipe! Unusual flavor, but good. I added baby carrots and a little red wine vinegar, its not as tart as the balsamic. It could use something to thicken the sauce.

This certainly smelled fantastic when I finally got in from work! Tastes pretty good too. My toddler also ate this without protest.Didn't really notice the cayenne.I also was out of fresh gingerroot so made do with ground ginger which worked okay.
