“Through the years I have tried to accumulate a collection of recipes that can be prepared very quickly but are still quite elegant. This is one of those dishes. It can easily be doubled or tripled as needed. Also, it can be baked in individual dishes for ease in serving. It can be a first course or a main dish.”
