      This is really good. I didn't have pine nuts so I used walnuts and it was awesome!! Beautiful dish too, very gourmet looking.

      Quick, easy to prepare and very tasty. Even my husband, who dislikes vegetables, liked this. I added a minced clove of garlic to liven it up a bit but otherwise prepared it as directed. A nice addition to my collection of low cholesterol recipes.

      Sorry, but I did not like this. I couldn't even finish my serving. I'm sorry that I can't really describe exactly what I didn't like about this.
