"Next time we will probably back off on the amount of Parmesan cheese, but other than that this was a very good meal. Everyone loved it, even the picky (non-mushroom-eating) kiddo."

"Loved, loved, loved it! My husband, who usually doesn't make any comments, said it was the best thing he has eaten in a long time and that he wouldn't care if I made this recipe every week. I definitely will make this recipe often. It was easy, healthy, and delicious! I'm sad there's no leftovers for tomorrow."
