  • “An absolutely fabulous recipe which certainly didn’t taste – or even look – low fat!I loved it from the list of ingredients and made only two small changes: I doubled the amount of garlic (personal taste preference) and added a packet of thawed and thoroughly squeeze-dried spinach.This recipe was so easy and so quick to make.And even more fantastic than I’d even anticipated.One I my best finds yet on the 2005 Zaar World Tour.I cannot recommend this recipe highly enough.Thank you, Lennie, for sharing itIf I could give this 10 stars, I would!”
