    I have been looking for this recipe! It was my all time favorite dish and I never understood why they removed it from the menu. I can’t wait to try this recipe this weekend. Even if its not exactly the same, if it comes mildly close, I’m gonna be a very happy forever fan!

    My daughter made this for me (and she’s just learning to cook) and it was SOOOO good I’m making it this weekend. ..please try it, just quickly cover with a lid after you add the wine and lemon juice to the oil and wait for it to simmer down. ..

    This was nothing like the real thing. For one, I almost got burned adding the wine and lemon juice as it sizzled and popped EVERYWHERE, making a mess of the entire stove, floor, and other areas. I tried this twice, putting it on low heat and adding the ingredients before it got too hot, but it still happened. I finally added those ingredients with a splash guard on top of it, but I also took the pan off the heat before I did this. Also, there was soo much cheese that it took away the flavor, and got me sick so I couldn’t eat my entire meal. I would not do this again!
