My family enjoyed this very much. The next time I make it I want to layer the cheese more. It seemed to have too much cheese on top for our liking. But it certainly tasted wonderful! Thank you!

This was fantastic. I made it as a side to Miss Nezz's Parmesan Chicken. Throw in some garlic bread and you've got a great meal. It also reheats pretty well. I made half the recipe in an 8x8 pan and there was plenty for our family of three. When I make this again (and I definitely will) I will probably spice up the marinara sauce a little. Thanks for sharing.

DELICIOUS! This was filling and easy to make. I used Muenster cheese instead of provolone. I halve the recipe. I will make this again. Thanks! I'm glad I picked this for ingredient tag!
