Visually stunning, crisp and flavorful, and so easy even the worst cooks in America could successfully execute the recipe. This dish made me look as if I had way more skill in the kitchen than what I actually possess. Great with lamb, BTW-Thank you for that recipe Barefoot Contessa! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great Recipe! Simple and low calorie if you cut the butter in half or substitute a low calorie margarine. This recipe will be used a lot in my kitchen! Thanks Emeril : item not reviewed by moderator and published
