very tasty and easy
I made this recipe for a family dinner and everyone loved it. My husband usually does not care for rocotta but loved it in this. My father who is a super picky eater had seconds, then left overs the next day. I used chicken sausage instead of pork and it was yummy. I doubled the recipe.
yes you can freeze just make sure thay are
cooled, they are wonderfull for left overs.db
Very good!!! Bake in a pan that has sides as it may leak juices.
Very easy! I used turkey sausage, fat free ricotta, and added some garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano and my results were outstanding!
