Absolutely phenomenal! I've been looking for this recipe for nearly 10 years.

Very good and easy. I made it for two, I'm glad I have extra sauce so I'm going to make it again tomorrow. I didn't have any almonds, not sure if I would have used them if I did. Adding that texture seems a bit odd to me.
