I tried this recipe last night - it was fantastic! I used chicken instead of beef, and also used low-fat ricotta and tasty cheese. Served with a salad and a lovely glass of wine, it was an absolute winner. I will be making again!

A great make-ahead meal. I prepped it earlier in the day and stuck it in the fridge until I was ready to bake them. I doubled the recipe, forgot the parm (oops), used frozen spinach (since it's all I had in the house) and low-fat ricotta. They turned out perfectly. Everyone enjoyed them. Next time I'll quadruple the recipe and freeze half.

I made this last night - my hubby loved it. I made a slight change, I used half & half ground beef & ground italian sausage then a little cayenne to kick up the flavors. Definately a keeper.
