This didnt quite come out how i was hoping it would. I think could be really good with some tweaking. The sauce was VERY runny and i think there should be atleast double the cheese. The veggies were perfectly cooked however. I might make this again but change a few things around and maybe add some spices to this as well to give it a little more flavor. Made this for a Bargain Basement Tag. Thanks for posting!
