    I made this for dinner tonight and love it! I cooked at a lower temp (used Pyrex) and added sauteed onion and mushrooms. I also paired with brown rice. Quick and delicious! =)

      Thank you for the feedback, Trina! The addition of mushrooms and brown rice sound delightful!

    My family loves this dish. I’ve made it numerous times. But without the Monterey jack cheese because nowhere on the directions is it added.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      That’s wonderful! I refer the Monterey Jack to grated cheese in step 3.

    • Chad

    Could eat this every day it is awesome only thing I changed was used mozzarella instead of parm cheese.
