    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!

    I made this or dinner yesterday and it was a hit. I prepared pretty much as directed except I used baby carrots instead of sliced, grape tomatoes instead of tomato slices. (what I had on hand) I also did not have fresh basil and added dried basil to the breadcrumbs I made from homemade bread. Since my b/f and I are very fond of cheese, I added shredded mozzarela to the top the last 5 minutes of baking. Thanks so much for posting! :)
     

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Hello! I am a student at UC Berkeley currently studying political science/economy and French. I am interested in the state of labor reform in Western European countries. I love to travel...but with the weakening dollar I have had to make do with living in Berkeley for the time being...although it has not been bad at all! I live just a few blocks from Chez Panisse (hopefully I will go someday...)and there are so many different cuisines here that I want to try! I most recently had Tibetan and Burmese food, yum! I am almost 100% converted to organic and environmentally friendly products...stop buying plastic bottles, bring your own bags to stores, reduce waste!
