This is a good recipe, but I don't like the sauce very much. The wine was very prominent, which did not appeal to anyone in my family.

I made this as directed, except I used parmesean instead of asiago since it was what I had on hand! This is a very versatile dish. I can make it fast on a weeknight after work, but it tastes "fancy" enough that it would be appropriate for guests as well! Thanks!

I have made this recipe many times. Each time it tastes a little better and I can cook it a little faster. I usually forget to get shallots, but onions work well. I always had more garlic and more cheese.
