With fresh sage and apple, this dish is tasty, easy and done in a flash. The recipe says garlic butter, but I keep a jar with three cloves of garlic covered in olive oil and use that instead. The garlic oil is delicious for salads also. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

"This was a good, healthy recipe but my family didn't care for the crushed red pepper. Thought it made it too hot and took away from the apple flavor."
