This was OK. A good place to start, but I added some italian seasoning to wake it up a bit. I found that 1 cup of stock was too much, and I'll use 1/2 cup next time. I added a bit of romano cheese mixed with the parmesan and fresh cracked black pepper at the end for a little more kick.
This was good. It wasn't anything radically different, but that was fine with me; I was just looking to use this as a simple side dish, and it did the trick. Thank you for posting.
I made this as a side dish to a baked chicken dinner and my family loved it. I made this pretty much as written, using a bit less garlic. I forgot to put the Parmesan on the table and they still loved it! I can't wait to serve the leftovers properly, with the cheese. Thanks Valerie for a great recipe!
