      This is excellent--delivers in ease of preparation and is long on taste. I left out the chicken livers as well and can only get limes where I live, so I used lime peel instead. Worked just fine. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

      I have just made this delicious recipe for a casual "sit-around-the-fire" New Years Eve dinner tonight, it is so delicious. As my husband and I don't eat offal of any kind, I ommitted the chicken livers and used dry red wine instead of white. Still so yummy!!!

      This was really very good. I was looking for a "different" sauce for spaghetti and I'm glad I tried this one. It is a bit on the rich side, but who cares ;-). Only thing I did differently was to use more garlic cloves, I like garlic. Thanks.
