MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2010

I made this today to take over to my parents for a cook out. We all thought it was really good! I liked how quickly it came together and how rich it tasted, even though it was light. I will definitely make this again! Next time I may add some chopped red bell pepper to it, although I think you could add just about any veggies to it with great results!

This is delicious. I've made it with plain bread crumbs and Italian crumbs and both are great. I recommend it!
