My DH found this recipe in a Paul Prudhomme book and has adjusted it to our preferences. Great side for just about anything (especially grilled foods) with a light flavor - which doesn't end up competing with your other dishes. Really easy to make, just toss it in the oven and forget about it (so to speak) while you work on other things. :) We tend to like the gorgonzola cheese lately, but feta also works really nicely. It all depends on what your main dish flavor is and your preference. Cooking times can vary - we find 70 minutes works perfectly for us.
