“To all of my fellow garlic-lovers, this dish will make your taste-buds happy, happy!! Tons of garlic, and just the right amount of seasonings. This is sooo good!! I have a bad habit, though, of hogging up all the garlic cloves, so I usually throw a few extra in...Hey, you can NEVER have too much garlic:)”
