    I made this for dinner tonight, as a side with brisket sandwiches. We really enjoyed it.

    Great recipe! It uses everyday ingredients to create an elegant and easy recipe. We served it with Broiled Parmesan tilapia, but the flavors would pair well with a number of main dishes. This is a keeper!

    I made this along with Parmisan Baked Cod. Hubby said it was better than a restaurant. Wow! Very easy and quick.
