I made this using 5 tuna steaks and served it over white rice. I used frozen spinach, cooked and drained and cream instead of half &half. I also marinated the steaks with a bit of garlic, orange juice, lemon and soy. It was delicious! Thank you. Read More

I used garlic herb goat cheese - sauce wasn’t as smooth as described. Next time will try it with Boursin cheese. Spinach is a nice addition. Read More
