We loved this! I used grape tomatoes, doubled the garlic and added 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms to the saute process. I totally forgot to add the parsley and butter and loved it without it. Will definitely make this again. I also added some crushed red peppers to the saute process.
Yum! Simple, tasty -- Thanks for posting!
We liked this very much, but I did add a little more garlic and combined chicken and shrimp, also topped with Parmesan cheese. I will definitely be making this again.
