I got this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis, on her cooking show. I saw her make this and had to make it myself, because it looked so good. And it is!!!

A bit disappointed in this recipe. Giada usually has great dishes, but this definitely isn't one of her finest. I added tons more spice after reading others reviews, and lots of cheese on top, and it still did nothing for me. Mascarpone is expensive where I live ($10) a container, and for that reason I can't justify making it again.

As others have mentioned, this is rather bland. I made exactly as written but next time would add some Italian Seasoning and garlic. I even used Giada's Marina Sauce as I always have it on hand (recipe #332598) and I love it. I would make again, just spice it up a bit more. Thx for posting.

I was unfortunately a little dissappointed in this recipe. It just came out a little bland for my tastes. Maybe adding some sald and pepper next time and using a different marinara sauce would help.
