I really liked it . We did add more oil, chicken broth to moisten it. We also added diced tomatoes and peppers. It was still a little dry but delicious.
This recipe was a good foundation... There needs to be more oil, for one thing, and I seasoned the oil to taste, adding some oregano. When it was finished, it was much too dry, so I mixed up a white wine vinaigrette with more basil and oregano, tossed along with the parmesan... it was delicious!
This was fast and easy. Very nice dinner. I added a little lemon zest just before serving. It was a nice addition.
