    Too much breadcrumb, or not enough tomato - I'm not sure which. This recipe is good but it would be much better with about half the breadcrumb. It is dry as is...  -  05 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good but use 1/2 the bread crumbs  -  03 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
