      Very tasty. Had to put them back in the oven for another 5 minutes as they were a bit doughy inside. Next time I will squish them down for more even cooking. Will definitely try again, Thanks.

      Very good! So easy! I used marinara sauce to dip them in, which went great with the parm cheese. These would be great to serve at a party :) Made for PAC spring 09.
