Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe turned out great and was a huge hit at our house, even my 4 year old ate it all! This recipe turned out great and was a huge hit at our house, even my 4 year old ate it all! The only modification I was was I left out the peas since we aren't huge fans of peas. Otherwise made the recipe straight as it is. Will definately be making this one again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good. Very good. I used bacon instead of prosciutto and skipped the mushrooms (not a fan), but still had great flavor. A little time consuming, but worth it.
