This recipe was a little work but it paid off. Absolutely wonderful!! Next time I will use double of the Sun Dried Tomato Vinegar Dressing though.

Meh. I needed a quick casserole and I had everything (mostly) to make this. I didn't have mozzerella, I had havarti. It's okay. Kids ate it but didn't love it. I doubt I'll make it again. ...

No, not good enough for me to make again.
