MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 24, 2011

This is ridiculously delicious....also pretty rich, but I find it impossible to leave it alone when I make it. I did cut down on the cheese once, from 4 c. to 3 c. to try and reduce the calories a bit, but all that cheese on it is soooo good. This is one of my most cherished recipes, and anyone I've ever served it to loves it.
