I added 1lb. of browned ground turkey and topped with monzerella cheese for a main dish recipe. I omitted the sharp cheese and used 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese instead. My kids loved it. Read More

I don't recommend using tomato paste. It came out so thick even combined with the tomato sauce. I personally could not eat this dish. I don't know if I did something wrong but it was awful! Read More

My son loves this dish. I use pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and paste. It's fast and easy. Read More

This dish is what my husband would call a "garbage dish" - his favorite! I also substituted 1/4 cup parmesean for the sharp cheddar. And I did not combine the pepperoni with the other ingredients but rather placed them evenly on the top of it all and then covered with more shredded cheese. Great!! Read More

This was okay. I agree with the tomato paste issue...I only used 1 can and it was still too thick. Also there wasn't much left to it in regards to taste. It wasn't bad but I've made many lunches that are just as simple but have more taste. Perhaps the addition of some bell peppers or onions would help do this dish more justice? Thanks anyways April.
