    OMG! Following another Chet's recommendation, I added 1T lemon juice and 2 cloves of garlic. I also added quite a bit of fresh ground pepper. This was soooo good and filling in small portions.

    This is to die for! Adding garlic was my only addition.

    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!

    This was awesome! I halved the recipe for just 2 of us. I also made a few changes, I used fresh zucchini because I had it, added a garlic clove. I used sun-dried tomatoes instead of fresh and I added the juice of a whole lemon to the broth. I topped with smoked salmon instead of shrimp. It took a little longer than I anticipated, but I wanted the rice to be done. I also added a bit more water, about a 1/2 a cup. We LOVED it!!
