    Any idea how many calories this would be for a serving?

      Hi Dawn! I checked the source of the recipe,, and it said this recipe serves 2 and has 584.9 calories per serving. I served this recipe to my family of four and it seemed to be just the right amount so if you only serve two people, it would be very generous portions. Have a great day!!
