  1. Now this was a challenge. Turned out my pie crust was dried out so had to do a quick head to the grocery. Then working with pastry is not my forte, however I muddled through & boy was it worth it. This was great. May not look beautiful, but I will get better, and the taste was delicious. Not a lot of work if you have a decent pie crust in the frig. I served this with recipe#373153 for a very delicious meal. Thanks Kim127, for a great side dish. Made for ZWT5.
  2. This recipe is simply stellar! Totally delicious. I doubled the amount of bread crumbs and slightly increased the cheese, which I highly recommend. Very simple and tasty meal with an impressive appearance. (Reviewed for ZaarTag).
