    The whole family liked this recipe. I used Italian bread crumbs. As a diabetic I've been looking for healthy tasty side dishes and this one is very good with only 10 grams of carbs!! I will definitely make this again.

    This is an excellent side-dish. I've even shared the recipe with both my mom and mother-in-law, who love it as well.
