"I made this for my husband and we both loved it. Its a very filling dish and tastes so good. Would defin make this dish again."
"This simple dish was a hit with my family. They have requested I make it again so this recipe is a keeper."
"I make this all the time, it is my favorite. It tastes like your eating at a five star restuarant."
"I made this and it was one of my husband's favorite meals ever! It is best when the sauce is still creamy/liquid. As it sits (or after being refrigerated), the sauce thickens and it isn't quite as good. Excellent use of fresh veggies!"
