"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."
