      We enjoyed this a lot...all except the 7 year old, but she gets in her moods. I served it one night with steak so we didn't add cheese...the leftovers the next night we added the cheese and agree it makes all the difference. My 10 year old also liked it balsamic vinegar drizzled over. Oh, and I used fresh broccoli steamed in the microwave. Thanks for posting.

      This was really good for a quick week night dinner. I used less garlic (and shouldn't have!), fresh broccoli and I added a couple of diced roma tomatoes. I served this over linguini because that is what I had. The cheese is manditory! :)
