This was a good basic recipe. I made this for my sons band and they enjoyed it but thought I could have used more meat. Next time I would add 1/2 pound sausage and 1/2 pound of ground beef. I did omit the mushrooms as I wasn't sure if they all liked them or not. I also added a lot more cheese then called for. I didnt measure, I just dumped as we love cheese. I thought it could use more seasoning also but the kids didn't say anything about that. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
