    As is the recipe looked quite bland for my husband's and my tastes. So I more than doubled the garlic, added a bit of lemon juice, was generous with the wine, and threw in lots of freshly grated black pepper. I also was a bit mindful about limiting the amount of oil we used. At the end, this dish turned out lovely! The broth is beautiful especially when served with some steamed white rice or crusty garlic bread. We loved it and will definitely make again, perhaps with just seafood next time - shrimp and scallops. Thanks for the great meal!  -  17 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We really enjoyed this recipe. It has quite a few steps but the end result is worth the effort. I served over angel hair pasta. I used chicken broth instead of water, doubled the garlic, and added lemon pepper as extra seasoning. Topped with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Fantastic pasta dish when prepared this way.  -  25 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
