    Loved the combo and it tasted great! Will make this again and again, and use whatever veggies I have on hand.

    Yummy! Next time I would omit the brocolli and add asparagus instead. It took closer to an hour to bake. Will make again.

    Wow! We loved this! My normally picky husband gobbled it up. I did cut some of the cheese down and didn't add the tomatoes and it was still delicious! Will definitely be making this again.
