"Made this tonight and it was delicious. Did it exactly as written and was it ever a good change of pace. Can't wait to try it in growing season. Definitely going in the file under keepers.

Now onto the next recipe!"

"I made this tonight as a side dish with chicken and baked potatoes. This was delicious, of course I added more garlic and fresh basil from my herb garden and decreased the fat content by using pam spray. I will definitely be adding this to my summer time favorites."
