    This might be a better recipe if the garlic was 2 teaspoons. 2 tablespoons is A LOT of garlic!! It is VERY garlicy. I actually added more Parmesan, more lemon juice, and a 1/4 cup of lowfat vanilla yogurt, in order to make it palatable. - 1/28/10

    Yes, you're right -- that's a lot of garlic! I really like that much garlic -- I guess its a personal taste, however, I've only made this recipe once -- my husband really complained about the smell of cooking the garlic! So - garlic lovers - this recipe is for you!!!
