    i made this version first, and loved it. now when i make it i add whatever takes my fancy and it is still a great recipe.  -  11 Jul 2015


    This is a classic combination of ingredients in Italian cooking, one I'm very familiar with as I grew up with it and prepare it often myself. However, the idea of the paprika just did not appeal to me, so I left it out. I don't understand the need for it, or how it would add anything positive to an otherwise perfect dish. Using the Italian seasoning was new for me, as it's not generally something I'd add to this, but I used a good quality Tuscan blend, and used it sparingly. No need to measure ingredients, just wing it with a little of this and a little of that to your liking--and finish with some good grated Parmesan or Romano cheese!  -  26 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    As written this was pretty bland. I used a whole head of garlic and served it topped with additional salt, pepper, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. This makes 8 servings, not 4.  -  16 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
