Perhaps you can serve this as a Valentine dish! It is good at any time. Use a good quality PURE parmesan cheese. It costs more but is worth it. Grate your own then it is really fresh and the flavor comes through

This was a filling and tasty dish I used Kalamata Olives and Shitake Mushrooms and lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Great, simple dish! Amen to using good quality parmesan. I have no idea what black mushroom is so i use regular and shiitake mushrooms. Thx Bergy

This is the first "meatless" dish I've made for my husband on my new diet. I added too much red pepper flake, but other than that, this was a great dish. I also added some chopped fresh green squash and let the sauce cook longer than the recipe requires, to let the ingredients cook down a bit. Will add this one to my dinner file!
