      This was fantastic. Very easy to put together. The curry paste added a surprising flavor. The only thing I changed was the amount of onions. My onion was on the large size so I only added half of it and it was plenty, two would of been way too much. I too just added about a handful of mozzarella cheese on top. Cooked in the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes. Delicious result. Thanks for posting JoyfulCook.

      Quick, easy and tasty dish. This was surprisingly easy to prepare. I was also a bit skeptical about curry paste but it worked well with the dish. I did add a little cheese on top of everything for the last few minutes of cooking. This recipe was made for PAC fall 2006.
