"Good stuff! I made four boats just like the recipe and four more using italian sausage, mozarella and roma tomato chunks instead of ketchup.

Both good but I'm not a huge ketchup fan so the second one was better for me and like my meaty, not so juicy garden romas for this type of recipe.
Hint: go easy or omit added salt with any recipe calling for cheese. You can always add more salt to taste when done!
Going to make the second one again with my larger garden zucchini tomatoes. May sprinkle in a few black olives too."

"Please start adding calorie and nutrient numbers. Look delicious, but I have trying to figure out the calories, so I look for a recipe that has them."

"This recipe was fantastic! I used tomato sauce instead of ketchup and added a spalsh of green tabasco sauce along with the seasonings and served it with brown jasmine rice. The whole meal was so fresh and filling without being heavy. Will be a dish I make year-round for sure!"
