Reviewed Goat Cheese, Lentil and Brown Rice Rolls Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Food Network

My husband loves this recipe. Delicious! Would be good to try adding cooked and spiced ground beef, bison, or lamb to this.

This turned out delicious! Definitely a keeper. I barely fit all of the ingredients into the casserole pan. You probably want to go with a really deep pan for this one.

Reviewed Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic

Jan 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was okay... I think hacking a chicken into pieces is a bit labor-intensive. Would be better to buy pieces already hacked. Also, I think a healthier version of the sauce (without all of the chicken fat drippings) would be better. In the end, the flavor was okay (but not amazing) and I had to excavate chicken from the bone during the...

Decent recipe, not really a keeper though. Maybe the steak would be better if cooked on the grill. My steaks came out a bit tough.

The turkey breast turned out delicious! We are definitely making this again.

Delicious but also not a very substantial dish. Add LOTS of cheese. Could also try adding couscous, quinoa, or some other grain to make this more filling.

Made for my boyfriend's bday. Amazingly delicious. Halved the clams and pasta, but kept the sauce ingredients at original specifications. Also, I left in the garlic at the end. Thank you!"

I switched out the couscous for quinoa, and added shredded chicken. Turned out amazing. To add some zest, I found a mango salsa recipe, and paired it with the couscous dish. The flavors worked together well."

Followed recipe to the letter, with the exception of adding chicken. Not sure why some people are complaining. Maybe they are not using the real Parmesan. Don't buy the dried Parmesan powder that you shake out of a can. Please buy Parmesan as a block or pre-grated Parmesan.

Nov 7, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I read the comments that the lemon is a bit strong, and thought to myself that I could compensate for this by adding addt'l items to the dish to spread out the flavor. Stir-fried zucchini, yellow squash, julienned carrots, cauliflower, and chicken. Then took the quinoa (which had been cooked already in the chicken broth and lemon herbs) and added...
