    Love. This recipe , great starter for dinner party.  -  01 Feb 2013


    I have had a gastric bypass, so can only eat small anything. This recipe fitted the bill just right, I had two which was enough for me. It was quick to prepare. Washed up while mushrooms were in the oven. They were scrumptious. Highly recommend.  -  12 Jan 2014
