    Mysterygirl's Note:

    I saw Emeril do this on TV and it looked so pretty, then we tried it and it tasted as good as it looks. Wonderful taste, easy dish, great with a plain meat like grilled steak or chicken.

      Really nice tasting dish. I must admit that your statement in the description about it being an "easy dish" isn't exactly accurate..... There are many steps and lots of prep work needed to pull it off. (I had no roasted red peppers, so I even had to take the time to do that!) But, it is a keeper- I'll place it in my "fancy-schmancy" file because it really is quite lovely. (I recomend sticking to the "grated" parmesan recommendation... I used shredded and it turned out a bit burned looking- still tasted great though!
