“This was yummy! I wanted to try something new and decided on this and was glad I did. Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen seldom ever lets me down. I served this over large croutons I made from stale bread I had in the freezer by cutting it into large cubes and toasting/drying it out in the oven.”
