Delicious! Will serve for my next dinner party!
Tried this recipie out for a group of friends at a dinner party.It got rave reviews from our small group of amatuer food critics. It's not always easy finding something that pleases everybody but this dish seemed to do it. What I really liked is it is an inexpensive, easy to prepare meal that has a unique delicious flavor. Always a good thing coming from an amatuer cook trying to prepare something different than the regular spagetti and meat sauce. Overall a great recipe I would recommend to everybody.
I loved the spice combination of the Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning Mix and smoked paprika! This could be a whole new flavor for Hidden Valley Ranch! I halved the recipe to make it for just my husband and I. It was easy and very good tasting. I used a pan that would go from stovetop to oven, so just added the cheese at the end and into the oven it went. This dish is so soulful and satisfying that it really does not need any side dish. I do not normally roast tomatoes, but tried it and it was easy. I think you could also get away with using canned diced tomatoes if you did not have fresh tomatoes on hand. I give it an excellent rating! Try it and you will too!
