Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Loved it, even though I did something dumb in the making. I thought I would save a pan, so I tried roasting the garlic and butter in the pyrex baking dish on the gas stove-top at the lowest setting. I will miss that dish! The added parmesan makes this dish special. Thanks for a keeper!
