    I have to admit - I was skeptical, but I was hungry for something different when there wasn't much in the kitchen. This is an *excellent* one-dish meal, perfect (like it says) for college students like me!  -  30 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I have made this several times now and it's always great! What makes it extra yummy is using Velveeta Extra Thick cheese slices. I think there are 10 in a package and I use the entire package. I use an 8x8 glass dish and put half of the slices in the middle and the rest on top. This keeps well and the left overs are great. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!!!!  -  04 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
