    I've been making this recipe for 6 years and each time I get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I've sub different kinds of seasonal fruit, such as blueberries, peaches, pears - depending what's in season as well as the cheeses (blueberries and chedder cheese not a great combination, but blueberries with goat cheese or a creamy swiss - wonderful). Great Recipe.  -  12 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe went over like gang busters at my dinner party. I left out the cheddar, added a third can of apple pie filling and added a bit of almond extract to the topping. It was delicious.  -  16 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did this and loved it just as the group of guys I did this for. It is great to make for a large dinner party or for a potluck. I did use 3 cans of the apple pie filling as I found it needed it. Also I used the no boil noodles to cut down on time.  -  01 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
