    Whenever I want to make anything requiring a garlic parmesan sauce I use this recipe. It has become a staple in my household. I love it!

  2. Hey how do you get the Parmesan to melt?Coz it doesn’t really melt properly at all…It remains grainy…

    1. It doesn’t melt when added on top of pizzas or sandwiches but when added to a sauce, it melts well. Also, try to use freshly grated cheese rather than already grated on.

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight. I tweaked it a little due to low salt diet needed. Used unsalted chicken broth & butter and omitted the salt to taste. I also added some leftover diced turkey and put it over egg noodles. Was very tasty. It was a snap to fix as well.
