    Used different ingredients. Nice dish. I added gremolata - grated lemon rind & a handful of chopped parsley in the last 45 mins - this is what Italian's do.  -  03 May 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added half a cup of red wine and didnt use any chicken stock, a richer flavor I think with less liquid left over.  -  08 Feb 2011


    Something else. I added a splash of white wine and 1 tablespoon of tomato paste to thicken the sauce. Delicious!  -  31 May 2010
