    The picture has pine nuts on the dish, be careful with such added tidbits, that’s at least a point more per serving.

  4. I actually made this for my "little bride" last night (along with the chocolate chip peanut butter pie) and just wanted to pass along that it was absolutely amazing. did not tweak anything. followed directions exactly and donna absolutely loved it. when she says, "we can serve this to company," i know it's really good. ha!!! will make it again & again. thumbs up on the creamy sauce…
