I have been making this rich and luxurious dish for at least 20 years. It is my favorite "splurge" dish! Although it is supposed to serve 4, my husband and I have been known to devour it all just between the two of us - it is that good!
Simple to make, but impressively (and decadently!) elegant! Perfect company dish!
