MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2010

"My teenagers really enjoyed this casserole. I thought that the rice would add a different flavor to this otherwise italian dish, but it didn't change the taste much at all. I personally found it to be a bit too salty and would cut the salt in half next time or omit it completely. Will make again..."
