    I found this exact recipe on Epicurious.com. It was yummy! Quite a few people had commented that they had served the dish on a bed of baby spinach which I did aswell. Everyone loved it!

    Yummy! I increased the garlic and reduced the green onion to 4 instead of 5. I love green onions but thought 5 may be a bit much. I did not have any wine so I used chicken broth. I used all 4 tablespoons of butter but you could reduce to 2 tablespoons. Very tasty dish. WIll definitely make again!
