Really good, but I would definitely increase the garlic by a lot!

My family felt this was bland and boring. It needs a huge bump in garlic as other reviewers noted. Disappointed as we were really looking forward to this one. Thanks for sharing though.

I was looking to post this!----I've had this first-hand (and the festival is coming up, so we're revisiting all those foods at a preparatory dinner...!) and it's fantastic. I recommend at least 3 TBSP of garlic, but we like garlic :) I usually bake it at 375 til done, then run it under the broiler to crisp up the skin. Yummmm.....
