    I loved it! Use more garlic and oregano than recommended.  -  20 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. Easy, fast to make, tasty and cheap. Added a chilly in the sauce to spice it up and some cheese on top when served.  -  03 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely Delicious!!! I changed the recipe a llittle. I added kalmata olives and instead of 2 cans of tomato sauce, I used 1 can sauce and 1 can diced tomatoes.  -  19 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
