Really simple and quick to make. I've made it several times now.

I altered the quanities slightly, and used pecans instead of walnuts as that's what I had, and left out the parsley. Instead of parmesan I scattered over some goat's cheese after I served it and it was really delicious--had a lot of envious comments at work when I had the leftovers for lunch :)

I halved the quantities and made for me and my 2 year old - just enough, so not sure that the suggested amounts would serve 4 adults.
I added some sliced green pepper for the extra veg and I didn't have any parsley so had to leave that out.
We both really enjoyed it.
I think this is a better lunchtime dish than dinner.

A really nice supper. I substituted the walnuts for brazil nuts, which was fine.

Just returned from Xmas hols and cooked this for supper today. Halved the quantities but didn't change anything else. It was delicious quick and easy to make, just right after all that rich food. Will certainly be making it again.
