This was a great recipe. Delicious flavors. I made it the night before for our lunch the next day. It took about 45 minutes to cook plus the extra 5 for the cheese to brown a bit. The sauce had a very nice flavor. I had just added an extra clove of garlic and some salt and pepper. Will definitely be making this yummy dish again. Thanks hungrykitten.
