*Sorry - I don't like the smell or taste of almonds. They had to go.
Yeah, that last pic doesn't really sell it. The dish wasn't really oily, but that image wouldn't have you believing what I'm saying.
I don't think there was enough red pepper flakes to make it spicy. I'd add more. The garlic on top was a nice touch, but the double concentrate tomato paste honestly made it a lot like chicken parmesan without the cheese.
The recipe is a solid foundation, but I think there is room for improvement. It made for good leftovers.
