    This recipe is perfect! It makes an amazing dinner, even my kids love it. I add Italian sausage to it, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.  -  01 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a very flexible recipe. One can add whatever comparable ingredients might be around. I used leftover loose meat hamburger and cleaned out the leftover cheese we had in the refrigerator, and also used up some freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Everyday, easy, and good.  -  19 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
