Wow, was this good. The dh was in flavor heaven. Asked if we could have this again and again. Made as written but I used Swiss Cheese Slices and Shredded Mozzarella and a spicy tomato sauce. This was so delicious, so glad that I made 1/2 the recipe, we are having the rest tonight for dinner, yes it is that good. Thanks for sharing Lazy... going into my keeper box.
