A fabulous, romantic dish for two - and it's quick and easy! I adapted the recipe from a Junior League of Lafayette, LA recipe; they say that it is the creation of Sous Chef Bryan Richard of Chez Marcelle. The original recipe calls for an entire stick of butter, but I think you'll agree that 3 tbsp. is plenty. If you like Amaretto, you'll love this! It can be served with angel hair pasta, but I like to eat it without so as not to interfere with the delicious flavors.
