      This recipe was pretty good. I ended up changing it up quite a bit because I found it a little bland without extra seasoning. I added about half a cup of parmesan to the saucepan just before serving and my boyfriend seemed really satisfied with that. Thank you :)

      My vegetable hating kid LOVED this dish. I added the fresh parmesan cheese, and extra garlick, during the cooking process which made it more flavorful.

      Needs the parmesan or a strong tasting cheese otherwise it can be a bit bland. Very nice and popular with our 3 year old.
