This was really good. Unfortunately I had to leave out the mozzarella because I didn't have any of the fake stuff in the house at the moment and I'm allergic to milk, but I'm sure it would be amazing without it. I found I liked the sauce a lot better cooled, but that may have just been personal preference. Thanks yet again Kitten!
