MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2011

"An Awesome dish!! I would recommend doubling the cheese, dividing it proportionally, adding a little Cheyenne (I did this as i mixed all of the herbs and spices together before sprinkling on the layers). Also, I would suggest 1/2-1/3 cup flour sprinkled over the tomatoes. I found that this helped the pie from becoming "soupy." An Excellent Dish!!! I have made Four times. and will Keep making For Sure!!!!"
