Made this last night with a good spinach salad. I thought it was wonderful but the boys in my house were not a fan hence the 4 stars. Maybe it was the mayo? Regardless I loved it. I didn't use the egg white and instead sprinkled the italian seasoning on top which seemed to work just fine.
What a fantastic dinner! Quite easy to prepare, and very very tasty. WE LOVED IT. A great meaal for the football game tonight. The combination of cheeses is GREAT ! A must try recipe.
