MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2010

"Quite frankly I was getting tired of making zucchini dishes and wanted to do something different. The only change I made was buying regular italian sausage due to store inavailability. In purchasing the ingredients I realized that I would have enough to make two at the same time (just had to purchase another box of spinach). It was easy to prepare and best part, it was delicious! I cut up the extra pie and put in containers to freeze for work-time lunches."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2010

"This was really good. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand when I made it so I substitued egg beaters for 4 whole eggs. I also substituted the mozarella cheese for cheddar cheese. I substituted ricotta cheese for cottage cheese and last, I didn't even have sausages! So, then I had some pepperoni, so I used that instead. Despite all the switcheroos, it turned out GREAT! My whole family loved it even though my husband said, "Wow, it looks awfully green!""
