Top Review by Mama.D.Good

I modified this a bit by making my own Cheese sauce instead of using the jarred sauce. I also slightly pureed the green and red peppers so that my toddler would eat it and I added chopped black olives to the mixture. It was a great dish that my toddler really liked and I felt guilt free with all the veggies in it. Thanks "Parsley" this will be in my family for years to come!
