"This recipe actually surprised me!! I was a little skeptical about combining cream cheese, ricotta and sour cream, I thought it would have been too much! I read the reviews, and added some Italian sausage, green peppers and onions. It was so good....comforting on a cold day and very creamy. Will definitely make again!!!!"

"Results were split. Two liked it and two did not. I found it to gooey like, with no real flavor. very bland in my opinion. Will not make again."

"Loved this!! I did not use anything low fat or fat free and it needed a little bit more seasoning, but otherwise, yummy and easy!!"

"Delicious! Used 2lbs of ground beef...also substituted a jar of tomato basil marinara instead of canned tomato sauce and doubled the green onions. The whole family gave it thumbs up. Will definitely make again!"

"Pretty good & simple to make. Next time I may try adding salsa and black olives, or using a mix of sausage and hamburger."
