I have made this recipe about ten times now. It has become the family favorite. Flavorful and aromatic to say the least. I am back to print another copy since the last one has been taited with spinach sap.

This was truly delicious. Good enough to make the effort to find the recipe again to rate it, which is a rarity.

very simple to make, delicious and foolproof. i used low-fat cream instead of milk and only 1 tbsp of oil all in all and no butter -- the dish still turned out to be amazingly tasty
