Very good! Used half the lemon & half the butter! Everyone loved it.

Also a little too lemony for me. I will make it again and cut down on the amount of lemon juice I used. It is good paired with the roasted red peppers, makes a nice healthy meal.

Added paprika

Those flavors together were just too much for me. It tasted like I was eating a lemon with parmesan cheese. My boyfriend said it was ok, but it just didn't live up to its rating for me.
