Too butter for me. I thought I'd give it a try and the first bite was pretty good, but after that it was a struggle. I won't be making it again.

Great recipe! Easy and tasty. I did add salt and extra parmesan cheese. Thanks for a great recipe!

I probably should have known I wouldn't like this since I typically don't eat something so full of fat and calories, but I had all the ingredients on hand and wanted to try it out. Maybe I'm just not used to eating things with so much oil and butter, but this seemed to be dripping with it to me. The flavors were decent, I used a lot of garlic, but all that butter and oil made me nauseous and I couldn't eat very much of this at all. I wouldn't make this if you're used to eating a diet that's lower in fat and calories, and don't care for things dripping in fat.
