MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2012

With all the delicious ingredients, I expected these to be better. My husband said they were "ok" and my bread fiend children took one bite and turned them down! However, the next day I warmed one of the leftovers up and it was much improved. Also, I would say that they do not need as much filling (parm cheese, etc) that is called for.
