  • An amazingly delicious recipe!!! I tend to do much less salt than others, and for this recipe, I use just a pinch of salt instead of the 1/4 teaspoon. Thanks for the recipe, JJABBS!! - 10/21/13

  • This is one of our favorite recipes! To add a bit more flavor we add a 1/2 cup of wine or so to the bottom of the baking dish. - 1/9/10
