"this is wonderful as written. Have made it several times and have added shrimp too. Tonight I added artichoke hearts and chicken - yummy"

"This was absolutely amazing! Just preparing this dish tantalized the senses. The aroma filled the house, drawing my extremely picky husband into the kitchen repeatedly, inquiring when dinner would be ready. I was pleased at the simplicity of this recipe, the availability of the ingredients (I had everything on hand except the prosciutto) and the ease of preparation. I followed the recipe and changed nada thing.

My husband suggested using chicken breast instead of the prosciutto for a change of pace although I preferred the recipe as shown.
This recipe is easy to prepare and delicious!!"
