MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2013

My family loved this recipe. It is fairly quick from start to table (about 45 minutes), and super delicious. Every one in the family declared it's a keeper!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2012

This is one of our family's favorites! Highly recommended. It does take the full 20 mn prep time, which is more time than I usually spend, but well worth it. I'll sometimes freeze the leftovers, works well.
