I never had such a meal that gave me the satisfaction that I’ve felt when I had this dish! Oh, man, it’s the best! If you have a lot of time to spare before lunch or dinner, this dish will suit you perfectly! I call it perfect because it is! Once you get a bite of the creamy and soft texture of all the ingredients, you will have a new perspective on life! Maybe a little exaggerated, but give it a try, and you’ll see. Enjoy!
