Got this from a former Olive Garden manager, so it should be the real thing.

Loved this. The second time i made this, I did end up using a combination of Romano and parmesan, and used a bit more than called for.

No! This didn't seem right at all. No sure what I did wrong but no matter how much cornstarch I added it was super runny. Had a problem with the milk too-doesn't say how much?

Just a question really. I noticed that the directions call for milk, but none is mentioned in the ingredient list. How much is needed (if any)?
