    I used mustard dill sauce instead, and it tasted good for a quick home meal but could've used a bit more flavour  -  03 Mar 2012


    My fussy 8 year old's comment was "mmm" and then later was very proud of her empty plate! Thanks for a great recipe.  -  10 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Made it healthier. Use a 375ml can of Light Carnation in place of the cream to make it low fat, but still yummy.  -  10 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
