Recipe Comments & Reviews

I went to 4 different stores looking for the lemon & pepper sauté. I finally found it and made this recipe for a romantic Saturday night dinner for my boyfriend. We both loved it; it was simple, quick, and very flavorful. I used chopped pancetta instead of proscuitto and topped the dish with shredded parm cheese. We both agreed this would be a great dish for company and will definitely fix it again for the two of us. Can't wait to try the other sauté flavors.
