  • I guess the basil did not excite me. I normally love basil, not sure what went wrong with my taste buds. Maybe too much sugar or something. - 5/11/11

  • We enjoyed this recipe! The lemon was great - we grow our own basil so that was great...! The calorie count listed is all messed up - but the taste on this one was good! I served it over Zatarain's dirty rice - XLNT combo! This is a keeper and we're making it again - 3/11/11
