A nice dish to have in your repetoire."
"really easy to make and the whole family loved it!"
"This meal is completely doable during the work week! Kids and adults alike give this one a thumbs up! You can add chicken if you want meat in this dish, and it works great."
"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 :)"
"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."
"add 1/8 - 1/4 tsp nutmeg"
"Excellent! I like to use a Basil pasta sauce and I put fresh ground black pepper and dried basil before adding the sauce. So good!"
