Used different ingredients. I don't particularly like rocket, so used baby spinach instead and added a little lemon pepper as seasoning - the family raved about the dish. Thanks - 14 Apr 2009

Altered ingredient amounts. I thought it was too much rocket and was quite bitter. I think spinach would work better. I also had to add more salt and cook in for 30 mins instead of 15-18 that the recipe said. - 26 Apr 2010
