"Great recipe! And, true to your word, it was very easy. My husband and I have both been sick with one thing after another this past winter and Easter was no exception so we had to cut way back on plans. This recipe was so-o-o good and so-o-o easy that we'll be making it again even if we do feel up to the task of making a more complicated dinner. Thanks for saving the day for us!!! P.S. I'm trying to give it five stars but can't seem to click on more than four. :-("
