This is good but I think it lacks a spice (red pepper? garlic? More rosemary or thyme?) but I'm not sure what. I'll keep checking the reviews to see what others may recommend but unless I figure out what it lacks I won't make again. It's not that it wasn't good (even my 5 year old ate her helping) but I felt I had to add extra parmesean cheese to just to add more taste. Read More

I found this to be pretty bland and the bechamel sauce not acting as a good pasta sauce. I think my husband and I would prefer an alfredo or butter sauce instead. I had to add more salt after cooking in order to eat. I'm wondering if marinated artichoke hearts would help give this more flavor OR sundried tomatoes would be tasty. Read More

My husband and kids liked this even though they all dislike mushrooms! Victory! For my bechamel I use 1 cup stock from bullion 1 cup cold milk 1 Tbsp cornstarch 2-3 T grated gruyere cheese. I also added 1 Tbsp lipton onion soup mix instead of salt or grated onion. The other reviews wondered about calories - it's the olives and artichokes both higher in fats. I agree that bacon would be yummy but there goes the low-fat option... Read More

I just read the ingredients and i cant understand why is this dish high on calories? 22 grams fat and 70 grams carbs!!! did i miss something? coz i had it before in a restaurant and i can understand that it can be fatty from the white sauce so i guess it depends on the method a one will take to prepare the homemade beshamel sauce. anyway its a very delicious dish.

This was a lovely dish I've made twice thus far. I doubled the recipe for a small dinner party; it was very filling/tasty and I received numerous compliments... my husband said it tasted like restaurant food! I always add more mushrooms and a little fresh garlic. I recommend this dish. Read More
