"This tasted just like a pizza! I didn't like that the string cheese never really melted. Be certain to use regular sized ham slices as mine were a bit oversized and it tore the shells."

"This was great and easy... I used low fat string cheese, low fat ham, Boars head pepperoni and healthy choice pasta sauce. I also put onions and greens peppers on top as well as some shredded mozzarella. And a touch of garlic powder. This was truly a great meal! I enjoyed as well as my family! Thumbs up and will be sharing with others."

"This was quick and easy. Very flavorful! Will make again. I took someone else's advice and used low fat cheese and turkey pepperoni. My only negative was that the string cheese in the middle was a little tough and chewy. But still a great dish."

"This recipe was easy, quick and tasted delicious! In an attempt to lighten the recipe a bit I used weight watchers string cheese and turkey pepperoni. It was a hit for the whole family, we will certainly make it again."

"I substituted salami slices for the pepperoni and did not use the black olives as my husband does not like black olives. It was very easy to make and very good."
