“When I saw this recipe in one of our local papers, I was intrigued. I think it is really very good, and I hope some of you do too. I love the rhubarb for the tartness it brings to this dish. Of course, you can always adjust the sauce if it is too tart, or too sweet. Nice served with new boiled parslied potatoes , fresh green beans and a crisp salad. Enjoy.”
