This was a stolen recipe from Olive Garden that was fairly simple to make and doesn’t have a ton of ingredients. It ended up tasting just like it does at the restaurant. We had Mom and Dad over for dinner and they both liked it as well.  Shane : 8/10 – Tara : 9/10

      It turned out amazing! I wasn’t expecting it to taste as good as it does at Olive Garden but it did. This recipe makes a lot. I will probably cut in half if I’m making it for just me and Shane.
