Top Review by Vicki Kaye

This was a very fun recipe to make. Like playing! And very tasty--pure comfort food. I thought it might need a touch more flavor, however. Next time I think I'll try a spaghetti sauce with seasonings, mushrooms or something like that in place of the tomato sauce. Thanks for sharing!
