A co-worker gave me this recipe years ago when I was looking for a romantic meal that I wanted to prepare. I thought it appropriate for me to post this on Valentine's Day so I am very happy to share it with you. It was such a huge success with my family tonight and I was very proud to serve them something so special! This is a very easy recipe to make and I hope that you try it!
