    very delicious. added sauteed mushrooms and garlic, it's best consumed warm!

    It was good but still lacked a little flavor for me. I would probably add mushrooms and garlic next time. I did add a little bit of mozzarella this time for it to be slightly “cheesier.”

    Quick and easy and even a pleaser for my carnivorous family!!! note, i didn't have fresh tarragon available in my area at this time and used a super strong looking parsley instead. Great, easy weeknight recipe.
    Great for summer. Would make it again.

    Smells like a mix between a farm and a craft store but actually tasted pretty good haha

    really good!! sub spice with parsley.
    Substituted parsley for the tarragon and added a splash of lemon juice. No flavor was too overpowering. Paired really well with the Foursight Semillon.

    Delicious and easy. I substituted orzo, added roasted red pepper for added color and sweetness and drizzled a touch of truffle oil to finish it. Will make again and continue to explore seasonal alternatives to this dish.

    I added more goat cheese and some mozzarella cheese. I'm not a fan of black licorice so I didn't use as much of the tarragon, it's a little over powering for me. Other than that, it was great!
    very bland, no real flavor

    Delicious I added quite a bit of lemon at the end. I would put more lemon peel in. I also used black truffle goat cheese- so good!

    It turned out pretty good. I added grape tomatoes and corn which made my pallet shoot for the moon!

    Overall tasty dish. The goat cheese isn't something I've had's an acquired taste.

    Very easy to make. Not sure that I've had Tumeric before. Next time I would add less.

    I wasn't too sure what to expect with this simple recipe combining ingredients that I like, but it worked out great. I used more cheese and lemon zest, and added lemon juice to keep it from getting too dry. I also used fresh basil instead of tarragon. Will make it again.

    Pretty bland not one I would do again Too lemony in flavour. Sauce was not overly full for such minimal dish
    Amanda 3 years ago
    Flavor was slightly bland. Added some black and red pepper to taste. I would probably try it again as a side dish.
