Excellent! I saw this prepared by Michael Chiarello on Food Network and have been wanting to give it a try. I made as written but used dried thyme (1 1/2 teaspoons) in place of the fresh. Thanks for posting!
I tried this tonight and my family thought it was yummy! My husband loves garlic and he was pleased. I didn't use fresh parmesan chees, but it was still good. Great Recipe!
