Ah, loved it! Great as a vegetarian main or served as a side with chicken breast or steak. I upped the seasonings slightly but otherwise made as directed. Made a great mid week meal, thanks for sharing.

Nothing pleases me more than finding a recipe that my whole family likes (it's no small task!). I cut back on the red pepper flakes for my little one and upped the fennel but otherwise made the recipe as stated. It was wonderful! Thanks for a keeper!
