I thought this recipe was pretty good.. My husband didnt like the flavor with the olive oil. I think if it was made with butter it would taste great! I'm going to try it next time.

My whole family loved this and I found it very easy to prepare. I did however halve the amount of oil and found this to be more than enough.
