Top Review by ImPat

A fantastic lunch for the DM and I (I had mine with a green salad) and the DM thoroughly enjoyed hers as is including young fresh green silverbeet (anything that gets the DM to eat green vegetables gets bonus points in my book). I did have to use vintage cheddar as shock/horror I was out of parmesan. Thank you Jan for a great lunch, made for Edition 9 - Make My Recipe.
