Yum!!! Excellent taste! I doubled the recipe and added a pinch of dried basil at the end. I put this with gluten free flour, noodles and added a little gluten free toast to the top. My young picky eaters asked for seconds. Thank you for this recipe! I only had mozzarella so I had to go with that. I will definitely be making this often.
Really good! Thanks for the awesome recipe! Only problem I had was with the noodle quantity. I had wayyy too much sauce for the 2 cups of noodles. I ended up with a goopy cheese mix, so I just boiled more noodles :) If you're making this I would suggest adding the sauce to the noodles slowly to avoid having to boil more. Thanks :)
