I will definitely make again! This is husband approved: Phil said it smelled delicious before we even ate it, then he said it was his new favorite! We both ate it right up. It was easy and different - soo good! We ate it over rice, and I'm itching to try to leftovers over spaghetti squash for a no carb dish. If you make this, let me know what you think!
