It was too cheesy for my tastes, but if you like a lot of cheese, then you'd probably like this. However, my husband (a huge cheese lover from Wisconsin) also found this got to be too cheesy.
This recipe is so popular at our home it is requested for Birthday celebrations as their favorite food. I make the spaghetti sauce with hamburger and Italian sausage to give added flavor
