    Tonight I used Plain Organic Yogurt instead of the sour cream and it was still very delicious.

    This recipe is great with lots of meats, but I really like it with Jennifer Shaw's Zippy Paprika Chicken.

    I've made this several times since recieving it in an issue, we just moved and I have yet to unpack my mags so I was happy to pull the recipe up on the laptop last night and made this to accompany Tuscan Beef w/tomatoes, it was delicous, my 2 year old had 2 servings!
