It is important that you use a good quality fresh cheese and grate it yourself - do not use the ready grated cheese for this recipe. I serve this with crisp crunchy rolls & a fresh green salad Great lunch or dinner

Pure Comfort Food! This recipe is simple and delicious - absolutely a "more-ish" type of meal. I had bought some nice Provolone the last time I was in Belgium and shredded this for use in the recipe. Next time I will add a bit of homemade basil pesto to the mix. Thank you for participating in the photo swap, it was fun and I hope you enjoy your photos :)

oh my gosh, this was sooo good! I made it for a bunch of people and they all loved it. Some said it was restaurant quality. Others suggested adding shrimp, chicken, broccoli or tomatoes. Next time I just may do that! Thanks
