    Very savory and delicious. Easy to make with ingredients I have on hand. I did also add a bit more extra garlic.

    Very good, but I doubled the amount of garlic as I love the taste.

    I made this for a "girls night in" and it was a huge hit. I put in an extra clove of garlic because I love the taste. I cut up a pack of Hawaiian sweet rolls to put it on and it was out of this world delicious! Will be making many more times in the future.
