"This was good with a really rich sauce. The pine nuts added something different and I served with grated Parmesan which added a lot to the flavor. Garlic bread and salad makes a complete meal."

"My family loves this recipe. I hadn't made it for a long time, and I was making a different dish, and he was disappointed that it wasn't this one. On occasion, I've added shrimp to it."
