We tried this new recipe tonight and I thought it was good as did the rest of the 'big people' but my two youngest didn't like it as much. Oh well! I thought it was a GREAT dinner for a hot summer night like we had tonight. I served it with a loaf of Italian bread and it was perfect - light and tastey.
