"This is a great simple dinner to make and tastes delicious. I will probably cut down on the butter a bit next time, but very yummy!"
"I have made this multiple times. My boyfriend loves it! I usually cut back a little on the butter and substitute olive oil. It has a good spice without being overbearing."
"My husband & I thought this is a great recipe. He completely forgot it was actually Diabetic Friendly."
"We served it alongside asparagus and the two were very complimentary. My husband and nine-year-old loved it."
"very good! a simple and quick meal. would probably only use 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper next time i make it - 1/2 tsp was a bit too much for my preference."
