MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2014

I made this for my mom and dad when i visited, they loved it! I fould it a tad bland, so i might throw some white pepper in next time.

Very good and easy to make. It is especially good with green beans from the garden. Adding a little thyme and sage to the sauce really bring out the flavor!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2012

What a fabulous dinner! Not a crumb was left. :-). I subbed Earth Balance for butter, plain rice milk for milk, and chicken base for granules. Also, I baked it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
