As a young person this was the entree to order when going out for dinner. I often made this wonderful dish when giving dinner parties and my guests just loved how pretty and delicious they looked on the table. There are many recipes out there but this is my version and how I like to serve this entree to my guests. We had these for our Christmas in July celebration and I must say my family were impressed and really enjoyed eating this delightful entree.
