Very good and very kid-friendly. I bought jarred marinara as I didn't have time to make up a pot, fresh, and added a dash of sugar and a spritz of red-wine vinegar (a trick I learned off Jamie Oliver to 'freshen' up jarred sauces). I also added some dried oregano. Fast to put together and very tasty. Some chopped spinach would also be good mixed in with the cheese.
