    OMG this is so simple to make and absolutely delicious.  -  21 Aug 2015


    instead of the muscles i had seafood mix - marinara and i personaly prefer sweet potato i found that normal potatoe was to over powering and boring to eat. with sweet potatoe i can stil taste the individual flavours of the seafood - howevr with just muscles since theyr flavour is strong - it could be fine  -  11 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
