My family loved this. I tweaked the seasonings to my taste but followed to overall recipe. Very good, cost effective recipe. Thanks for posting.

My husband and I thought this was pretty good it just needed some salt. We also used cheddar cheese instead of parmesan. It makes A LOT. My skillet was full. Thank you.

Really quick to make and so much better than the box. I will be using this recipe rather than any of the boxed stuff.
