MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 13, 2014

This is a keeper! For us, though, this recipe easily makes enough for 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2013

This was great. Easy and quick to make. I like salt but I did not add any, as the recipe says, because I thought it was salty enough. Just before I served it I sprinkled mozzarella on top. Would definitely make this again.
