"I have made this dish several times. It is a big hit everytime I make it. Very easy and simple to make. I have even started to bake the dish at 350 degrees in the oven til the cheese is melted or bubbly and it still takes fantastic! (make the dish as instructed and then bake at 350 degrees instead of in the broiler)"

"Simple, good and pretty healthy recipe. Preshedded cheese is a must because I shredded my own and it was difficult to distribute evenly. I used nisoise olives and kalamata would be good too for more flavor."
