      Wonderful recipe! I made it exactly as directed adding in the Grand Marnier. WOW - so intensely orange and oh so good. I love how the vegetables thickened the sauce just perfectly without needing cornstarch or other thickeners. I will definitely made this company worthy dish again! Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT8

      Delicious! I completely agree with adding the optional Grand Marnier. I served it with Sauteed Cauliflower. The slight tartness of the orange sauce went beautifully with the sweetness of the cauliflower.
