    Really enjoyed this, made it for 4 people instead of 8, maybe worthwhile to put the ingredients up in smaller portions Lovely meal though !!  -  23 Apr 2016


    This meal is beautiful, I have made it several times. But for a healthier option, try using crème fraiche & a little more Parmesan cheese.  -  08 Oct 2013


    I have been looking for this recipe for some time now. Cooked it for 4 people and it was so good. I would make more sauce for next time though.  -  15 Jul 2016
