    A few simple ingredients can make a delicious meal! I suggest adding a side salad (like in the picture) because one serving is not very filling.

    This was very good! I added 5oz of grated parmesan by mistake but it was wonderful - I will do that again. We also broiled it in addition to baking it. Nice job! We bet that this will also be as good with feta or sharp cheddar. Thank you!
