My roommate and I gave this 2 thumbs up! I added a 7 oz. can of sliced olives, used hot sausage, diced tomatoes with roasted garlic and a combination of sharp cheddar and mozzarella. I loved the balsamic in the sauce! Thanks for sharing, AzMama!

Made this twice since tagging it for PAC, Fall '09 so I guess it rates a high five! This is comfort food at its best. I like that it's not a heavy thick sauce yet the flavor comes thru very well. Will be making this one often.
