MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2010

"When I first came across this recipe I was thinking pizza sauce and pepperoni on macaroni and cheese? Figuring I'd give it a shot anyway I was NOT disappointed. My son didn't think he would like it either but he smiled wide and said this is "my third favorite now." Will definitely make this again!"
