I thought this was really good! I liked the texture of the ricotta and parmesan. Instead of milk, I used fat-free half and half. I did add a bit more salt, pepper, and some onion powder, as well as a few squirts of dijon mustard. Thanks Marsha!

This was a little too bland for use, even after adding extra cheese. It needs some type of spice, maybe ground red pepper or something to give it a little flavor. Neither my DH or I enjoyed this very much.
