      Whipped up a half batch of this for lunch yesterday and it was delicious! In step 3 of the directions it says to add mozzarella with the other cheeses, but none is listed in the ingredients, so I skipped on that feeling there was plenty of cheese with the 2 varieties listed. I used extra sharp cheddar and monterey jack in mine and it bakes up nice and smooth and has a good overall flavor. Thanks for sharing!
