This does make a huge amount! Turned out delicious though, and there's a lot of room to experiment with sauces and spices. I ran out of italiano cheeses, so I used old cheddar on my second pan, and since I was feeding a group of "growing boys" both pans were demolished. Everyone seemed to like the cheddar topping better, so definitely play around with your cheeses too. Excellent!

I will be tryin these but I will only use 1 sauce, my own home made #106003. I have not used any store bought sauce since 1986. Update to follow! 10-15-2008 Ok update 10-16-2008. If you like something good and easy to fix, here you go! I made a few changes but stayed pretty close to the basic recipe. First I cut the recipe in half, when is says 8-12 servings, she is not kidding. I used regular chunky cottage cheese and used plain yogart instead of milk, a little more than 1/2 cup. I sliced a tomato across the top of the shells to keep the moisture in the shells, then added the mozzarella and more parmesan cheese, returned to the oven to melt the cheese. It turned out very moist! I baked it in a convection oven at 350 for 50 minutes, came out fantastic. Excellent taste.! Thank you for the post!

We had this for dinner tonight and I thought it was really good! I halved the recipe though and actually didn't have some of the ingredients called for, but even without them it was tasty. I also subbed cottage cheese for ricotta as I am not a fan of ricotta.

I would definitely recommend this recipe and will be making it again! Thanks!

This one is popular at my house. I make it per the recipe, except I vary the seasonings a bit - use salt, pepper, garlic salt, oregano and basil, not measured. It does make a LOT, but I have teenaged boys so that's a plus for us.

This is just great. Yes, it makes way too much, but freezes quite well and I am on my third,[and last], thawed meal serving for three folks. Not only great tasting, but frugal, considering the meals you can get out of it.
