Really good flavor. Just seems there's a lot of excess sauce. Could definitely make a few more of the rollups to use that extra.

This tasted just like a pizza! I didn't like that the string cheese never really melted. Be certain to use regular sized ham slices as mine were a bit oversized and it tore the shells.

We liked but had trouble with the cheese running out.

This was great and easy... I used low fat string cheese, low fat ham, Boars head pepperoni and healthy choice pasta sauce. I also put onions and greens peppers on top as well as some shredded mozzarella. And a touch of garlic powder. This was truly a great meal! I enjoyed as well as my family! Thumbs up and will be sharing with others.

This was quick and easy. Very flavorful! Will make again. I took someone else's advice and used low fat cheese and turkey pepperoni. My only negative was that the string cheese in the middle was a little tough and chewy. But still a great dish.

Very tasty, loved by the whole family. We left out the olives and used low fat cheese.
