This dish was beyond delicious! That sauce is smooth and creamy and the lemon and herbs elevate this dish beyond ordinary. I will definitely be putting this dish to my list of favorites. It wasn’t a hardship having the rest of the wine with dinner either.

It’s always fun to share so let’s head over to Fiesta Friday and Saucy Saturdays!
