I followed the suggestion of the first rater and added more water, about 1 cup. I also added a layer of pepperoni and extra mozzarella along with a parmesan/romano blend. It was tremendously easy and my husband loved it.

I found this to be pretty dry, so I will definitely add more moisture next time, perhaps a can of tomato sauce. And I will add more cheese of both kinds, although I suppose that does defeat its purpose as a diet friendly dish. We really did like the flavor and the convienience of coming home to a ready-cooked meal. I will be making it again, jusy with a couple of adjustments.
