MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 11, 2013

"I had in my mind when I decided to fix this that it would be better warm with toast points on the side which is how I served it and everyone loved it. Everything I had was basically cooked except the tomato so I added a little rosemary and omitted the walnuts (only because of my family's tastes) and I put the stuffed tomatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes on 300."

MY REVIEW

"I did not really care for this at all. Maybe it would have been better as a sandwich on toast; but I will not be making again."

MY REVIEW

"I ended up just putting this on toasted bread. Basically a chicken salad sandwich. The ranch really made this good. We will be using this recipe for sandwiches again!"
