    I'm sorry to give this recepie only 2 stars but we didn't like it. I cooked it as directed, using the same ingredients. It came out looking just exactly like on photo, but the taste and smell was a bit too much for us. I have to mention that we are a seafood lovers and like anything with fish but we did not like this. I finally realized what people mean when they say "it smells fishy ". Will not make it again. Sorry for the bad review.

    The husband loved this and wanted more anhovies in it. Not my cup of tea, but very rich, very easy to make and very nice if you are an anchovy lover.

    Jan this was excellent!! I am so not a fishy person but I don't mind the salty taste of anchovies. I cut up the anchovies and added them to the onions so that I couldn't see them when the recipe was cooked...lol. I used full fat cream, what the heck, I didn't want to spoil the taste. Served with Steak in Garlic Wine Sauce #126068 and Zucchini Mexicali #91864. A perfect meal!!
