I made this for the two men in the house tonight and they both voted 4 stars. They both said it was very good and had no trouble getting it down. I did skip the parm cheese as DH can't stand it. It's simple to put together. Be aware that it makes a small loaf if feeding teens or hungry men. Made for PAC, Spring 09.
