This is a very good recipe. I left out the nutmeg because of previous review. The flavors all went together well. Made for 1,2,3 Wonders 2007

Excellent mash recipe! I halved the recipe with no problems. The roasted garlic and smoked mozzarella were fantastic together! Made exactly as stated. The only thing I might change next time is to leave out the nutmeg. I thought it overpowered the other flavours a bit, but DH licked his plate and didn't taste any nutmeg, so it might be me. :) Thanks lazyme!
