MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

Very easy and really good. Since there are only two of us I divided it into thirds. Only problem is that I ran out of filling and ended up with 10 rolls. But for

us that's fine. We definitely make again

This was easy to make, I like this because it was my turn to cook and I got two meals our of it (well actually 3 or four, just my wife and I ). I am just getting back into cooking since I retired and I found this a easy meal, it left time to make salad and make some garlic bread. Next time no Rosemary, instead Sweet Basil, someone mentioned adding mushrooms , I like that idea. BTW the dinner turned out good, on time an hot.

MY REVIEW

I wasn't sure about the lemon flavoring prior to making this. I tasted the filling before spreading on the noodles. It tasted pretty good, but the end result was that the lemon flavor was out of place in the finished product. I have another roll-up recipe I prefer. If I make this one again, it will be omitting the lemon.

Loved it and the frozen was just as good as the fresh.

MY REVIEW

This took a little more effort than usual Simple & Delicious recipes but was really good. Next time I'll add fresh mushrooms to the sauce mix & garlic to the cheese mix (I cut this in half & didn't freeze any). Definitely think fresh herbs make a difference, worth the extra effort.
