      I modified this for our budget and it came out perfectly. The first time I made it with regular old hamburger, cheap spaghetti sauce, and shredded cheddar and then followed your instructions. The second time I just made on it on the stove top. Both came out perfectly. Thank you for sharing.

      This made and easy and delicious dinner for us the other night. I used the same exact spaghetti sauce and we really liked it. My family didn't even know there was lowfat mozzarella in it. A definite keeper.
