    One of mine and my family's favorites for sure. I added more chicken and just a variety of herbs I grow. I definitely will be making this again.  -  13 Jan 2018


    I don't typically write reviews on recipes whether I like them or not. This one however, is a masterpiece. My husband and picky children want me to make this every night of the week. I made it exactly as the recipe called with some crusty bread on the side. AMAZING! You won't be disappointed.  -  11 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this and the first thing my husband said was that it rivaled anything he's had at Olive Garden...and he is not one to give compliments unless he really means it. I halved the recipe and it still made enough for 5-people. I added crumbled bacon at the end and it was delicious!! I also added a bit more milke at the end to get it to be a little creamier and not so thick. Anyway, it was heavenly and I will definitely be making this again and again!!  -  11 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
