"5 stars for this one!!! Everyone asks for this recipe! Even bona-fide carnivores are won over by this dish...every time I make this, it seems the whole neighborhood knows what's going on...now if I could just get help w/the dishes...this a very easy dish to personalize..and I usually double the recipe..freezes very well. A nice dish to have in your repetoire."

"So delicious and so easy! I used ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese because it was all I had in the fridge, and I added some garlic salt and black pepper to the mixture. I also cooked it right away because I saw too late that I was supposed to refrigerate it! Still delicious and easy :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2011

"I've made this several times and it is a hit with my husband and my toddler. I use extra mozz cheese and spinach, and skip the parm, and i can usually make 8 rolls with it instead of 6. Also i've found that 40-45 mins is the perfect cooking time."
