A very good, easy recipe . Delicious and filling, and a nice change of pace from the traditional red sauce pasta bake. I ended up adding homemade alfredo sauce as well as some leftover roasted chicken. Everyone in my family really enjoyed it!
This was okay but seemed to lack flavor. I think next time I will make it with marinated artichoke hearts--maybe that will spice things up? Was definitely easy to prepare.
It was certainly quick and easy to prepare and tasted good. I would prefer it to have a little more body, something that brings it all together. Kind of simple for my taste.
I am only giving this 4 stars because I did make some changes to this recipe but will try as written next time. But here were my changes to the recipe which we were found to be quite a good dish as a main or a side: omit one cup of mozzarella and replaced with an italian cheese blend; added 1 tsp garlic powder; and added 2 tbsp of cream cheese. I used green giants creamed spinach. Hope this is helpful. It really was quite good. Didn't need to add salt or pepper to this dish.
My daughter is a vegetarian and loves this! We are going to be adding it to our regular list of quick dinners. I'll add some minced, browned garlic next time for some extra flavoring.
