    Not bad! I left in the oven as mine were a bit thick, but it was a nice simple recipe for a quick weeknight dinner! I also added a bit of garlic powder to add some extra flavor!

    My mother says it tastes like it should be in a fancy restaurant. I made it with lemon garlic asparagus. These two recipes will definitely be used in the future.
