On a scale of one to ten, my husband gave this a twelve. I agree with him. Very rich dish. Great for eating every once in a while. Do yourself a favor and use a well-aged parmiggiano from a good import shop. I thought it wasn't going to be that important, but the complex flavors really bring the dish alive. Also, I realized after the first helping that it's really hard to overdo it on the mint, so put as much as you want.
