This dish was pretty good, but nothing special. It needed more sauce and seasonings, in my opinion.
didn't have Italian seasoning but made my own with basil and oregano. upped it a bit due to reviews stating it was bland. seasoned just perfect with my own mix of seasoning.
A little too bland
I doubled this for my family of three and had one helping of leftovers for a lunch.
OMGoodness, turns out this casserole is just the right size for us **empty nesters**. Look fwd. to making soon!
