    The general consensus from reading others reviews on this recipe was that it was kind of dry. I added extra olive oil and doubled the amount of garlic. My family loved it.  -  23 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very easy. I was disappointed and would not make it again. It was very dry.  -  22 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We soooo enjoyed this dish. I added alot of garlic as well as lots of pepper and fresh oregano. I added a little touch more olive oil just to make sure it wasnt to dry. I also sauted vidalia onion with the bacon which added so much flavour. I served it with brocolli and cheese sauce and salad. Talk about fattening, but worth ever bit.  -  15 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
