Sorry we found this really bland, even though I also added a clove of garlic and used regular cheddar cheese instead of parmesan. It was easy to prepare but looked better than it tasted. - 09 Dec 2012


Loved this thank you so much! Really easy to make, it will be added to our regular meal list. I added fresh tomatoes - 06 Sep 2011


Yes it was tweaked only slightly though by replacing the 'normal' gluten based ingredients with gluten free ingredients as it's vitally important to me as a coeliac to be completely gluten free and my husband and children are gluten free by choice to make life and meals easier for me my husband actually cooked this recipe tonight for our children's dinner and they all thoroughly enjoyed it and we will definitely be making this again thank you so much - 07 Sep 2016
