I made this tonight for supper. It was very good. In the recipe, though, it doesn't indicate how many eggs to use, so I used 1 and it was fine. I also substituted pizza sauce for the tomato sauce for a little more flavor. I feel if it weren't in there, it would have been a little plain. Over all, DH said it was good and I will definately make it again. Thanks for the recipe.
