  1. I made this tonight, and it was amazing!!! My daughter, who is my toughest critic, ate every last piece of this meal. At the end of her eating, all I heard was “that was good”. I also made the side dish of Parmesan roasted potatoes, that was suggested as a side dish. This might be the best meal I’ve ever made!!! Thank you.
