MY REVIEW

Very good and easy to make.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2013

This was relatively quick to make, but the result was a dish that seemed like a lot of time went into. It was delicious and my husband had seconds (and we had leftovers for lunch). I will definitely be making this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 11, 2012

This is definitely a keeper. This made a 9x13 pan for me although I didn't measure everything exactly just threw stuff in. I'll double the green peppers next time and add some mushrooms. I added some ground pepper, just a personal preference.

MY REVIEW

Have made this recipe many times for family & company, it is delicious! The only change I made was to use my own homemade tomato sauce.*****
