This was delicious. I made it for a family get together and most everyone really enjoyed it. (those that like vegetables!!) It went really well with grilled pork loin and chicken. I didn't use the cloves, though. I liked the flavor without them. I, too, sprinkled parmesan on top and left off the bread crumbs. I definitely will make this again.
