I have been making this for a couple of years now, but I didn't write a review. I made it again yesterday for company and they loved it. I doubled the recipe and also added a teaspoon of granulated garlic, just because I love garlic. It is absolutely delicious. Thanks for the recipe, it is a keeper.

I saw Giada make this on Food Network and had to try it. She said that if tomatoes aren't in season, feel free to use tomato sauce instead. I used a jarred roasted garlic flavor marinara sauce, and I feel it gave the dish the extra flavor it needed. I also used a sweet potato instead of a yam (what I had on hand) and also gluten-free cornflake crumbs instead of breadcrumbs. The crust (of course!) is the best part. Thank you for posting!
