  1. good dish but not exploding with flavor per say. I would def make again. I made the modification with feta and brown rice. I also added some zucchini to sneak in some veg.
  2. I'd never made snapper before so I was a bit nervous- but glad I tried this! Really delicious...I didn't change a thing:)
  3. I just made this dish tonight. I had to use flounder instead of snapper because the store was out of snapper. However it was fantastic with flounder! I can't imagine it being any better with snapper but I'm looking forward to trying it. I followed the recipe exactly (except for the flounder substitution) and it - Read more ...

  8. This was delicious! Based on other comments saying it was too spicy I reduced the red pepper flakes by 1/4. It was just right. I also added a spoonful of commerical spaghetti sauce to help thicken the sauce. I will definitely make again. I'm planning to make it for a dinner party for five.
