This was very easy and quite tasty. I highly recommend the toasted almonds which added a delightful crunchy Smokey flavor. I did make two changes. I had inadvertently picked up a six Italian grated cheese not mozzarella. I used this instead of mozzarella pearls. It tasted great. We also added some precooked grilled diced chicken for extra protein, which also tasted great but is definitely not necessary. Read More
