I thought this was fabulous, the kids thought this was fabulous, dh thought it was ok. But he's Italian. ;) I didn't bother separating the eggs....just used them yolks & all. I did make my own sauce although it was just a lame seasoned can of crushed tomatoes, lol. I highly recommend this as a way of getting extra protein into the kiddos! made for Pool Party Tag 5/10.
