I cooked this for my daughters Italian boyfriend, he was gobsmacked. This dish i have cooked a few times now, it's easy and tasty, very good summer dish when the weather is too hot for a lot of cooking. I would recommend this to anyone. I cooked as per recipe, why change something this good? Thanks for sharing with me, good luck with the Zaar.
Very good! This was everything you said it was in the description. It does come together quickly at the end so have all the elements ready for the pan. Better cooks than I will time this to perfection. With a little practice, I'll get it just right. :) Thanks for posting. Made for My 3 Chefs 2007.
