I made this last night and came here to Recipezaar to see if it was posted and here it is! This was an easy recipe to put together. It's like a lasagna, but seems easier to deal with. I followed the directions exactly and it turned out just fine. I'm giving it 4 stars just because while it was good, it didn't knock my socks off or anything. I'll definitely make it again, though!
