"easy and just delicious! Substituted red for green pepper, but otherwise followed directions. The garlic powder adds much to this dish."

"Wow, what a simple recipe that tastes great. It is flavorful, moist and fresh tasting with the veggies. I used sliced provolone on top instead of the pepper jack since i had it on hand. I served this for lunch and it rated an 8 or 9. Will make this again, can see potential with boars head buffalo chicken and buffalo sauce as well for a change of pace."

"Loved the recipe and the great idea for dinner. A very simple recipe easy to personalize with substitutions. Great use for leftover roast, and smoked mozzarella and provolone cheeses added a nice smoky flavor."
