This was fantastic! Really delicious, but still very easy to make. I will definitely make it again and again. I did make a few changes, however, based on personal preference... I added a couple big cloves of garlic along with the onions, and mixed in a couple tablespoons of lemon juice at the end. I also reduced the amount of butter and Parmesan cheese by about half (it was still very creamy and flavorful though). But all in all, if I could give more than 5 stars, I would!
