My children are picky eaters, but love the Chicken Mezzaluna at Carrraba's. They both gave this recipe a "two thumbs up!" I reduced the proportions of half&half b/c the fat content is very high, and will continue to work at reducing that on future attempts. All in all, this is VERY close to the restaurant version. Thank you!!
