Delicious recipe! This is the very first pasta dish I made for my boyfriend and I last night. He loved it so much, he begged for me to make it again tonight. This recipe is definitely a keeper in my book. Thanks so much!

Just finished dinner for my family of 5 and we are all so incredibly satisfied with this dish. I used chardonnay instead of chablis (because that's what I had) and it was still delicious. Not only was the taste amazing, the aroma in the house just felt so comforting.

WOW!! This was deilcious and crispy! I was very impressed and it was so easy to make. I added some McCormic herb-rub seasoning to the dry bread crub mix and it came out incredible. I'm sure it would be delicious even without the extra seasoning. I will be making this as one of my regular dishes.

This is good, but it didn't taste the same as the real thing. Olive Garden's version has less breading and a more subtle taste to the sauce.

I would reccomend not using crushed red pepper, instead, mix 1 tsp of grated or FINELY shredded parmesan and 1/4 tsp ground red pepper to garnish.
