      This was easy and a nice change. Served with grilled Lobster tails and Snow Crab legs for Valentines Day, and it paired well. Although my son didn't seem to like it as much as I thought he would, but I will make it again.

      This was easy to put together and tasted good. I only used about 2 T parmesan (that was all I had left), which was ok because I served it with Chinese Simmer Chicken and I don't think I would have paired well with the right amount of cheese. This did need salt and I would have liked a set amount mentioned. I did use chicken broth.
