    This was excellent. I used freshly grated parmasean instead of the goat cheese. Great with more or less garlic. Janet. VFE

    This is excellent ! I have made this twice for family and friends and it was loved by everyone. when I am short on time I mix the butter a day in advance to make dinner time just a little faster!

    I was leery of this recipe...I wasn't sure how the goat cheese would blend with the other flavors. Oh my goodness!!! This was so good!! I made half without the goat cheese and half whole family preferred the half with goat cheese. But was still really good! I will definitely make this again!
