The green leaves in the picture look just like the leaves on my oregano plant.

This was a huge hit. I followed the other reviewers' recommendations and used an extra half jar of sauce, and 3 cups of mozzarella rather than 4. I made mine vegetarian using meatless crumbles and sauteed green pepper and mushrooms with them. I used a large casserole dish. Was a hit with friends and family. Highly recommend.

Need more sauce. 24 oz of sauce is not enough.

I make this and it is very good except I use Ricotta and if l am short on Ricotta l will mix and grind up some Cottage and mix in with it. I also use some of my ingredients to put more flavor to it. Also I have added different type of Pasta sometimes you have a little bit in jar a little bit in another so I just cook all together one thing l do is that l never cook as long as the directions says because it finishes cooking inthe sauce l go about 3 minutes less in there cooking time. One of the reviews a person by the name of CaArJoSi he wonder what the green was on top I do belived that it is Green Onions they cut off the green stems finely. Thank you Taste Of Home For The Recipe !!! auntbea (From Maryland)
