Very good. Used 3/4 amount of butter. Will make again but reduce the butter by half and increase the garlic. May add a splash of dry white wine too. Thanks for posting!

Surprisingly good. Used 1/2 amount of butter. Will make again and add olives.

Great easy recipe. I used half the butter, added more parmesan cheese and some chicken broth for a thinner butter sauce. I also added some sliced black olives and mushrooms. It was really yummy!
