MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 21, 2014

"Simply scrumptious! This is a "restaurant quality" meal, no doubt!!! I served it over noodles and fresh asparagus and followed through with the wine recommendation, chardonnay. This is the meal you make when you want to really impress someone or celebrate a special time at home."
