      I really liked the idea of the bechamel parmesan sauce on top instead of the usual layer of mozzarella cheese, which I believe is the more traditional Italian way to go. The filling is also different in that it was a chicken and sausage combo. I thought the filling needed a little more flavor. This recipe has no spices, no salt and pepper, no onions - I believe the parmesan cheese and spaghetti sauce and sausage are supposed to do that.
