"great recipe. I would add a little salt and lengthen the cook time. I sprinkled fresh parsley on before serving."

"Loved it! Can I say it again, Loved it! Easy, tasty and everyone wanted seconds. I did pop mine in the microwave for a few mins as they were thick pieces and were done to perfection by looks but needed a bit more in the thick parts. We will have this one again and again."

"Nice flavor. Substitute your favorite herbs for the basil if you are not a fan."
