"This recipe is most definitely a keeper. We used half mild italian sausage and the other half hot italian sausage for just a lil bit of kick and it came out perfect."

"Easy and good! I used ring bologna instead of italian sausage. I also added a bunch of italian seasoning to give it some more kick. Definitely comfort food! Easy.Fast.Good."

"This recipe needs some spice. I added some onions, garlic and basil - and I mixed up the cheeses - it is especially good with mozzarelli, provolone and a bit of sharp cheddar."
