    I haven't made this recipe yet. It is on one of the meal plans and the shopping list did not specify fresh mozzarella, only 1/3 pound mozzarella. I did not purchase the fresh mozzarella when I went to the store, so now I have to go back to the store to get the correct ingredients! I am looking forward to making and enjoying this recipe.

    This is delicious. I also fried up a little garlic with the tomatoes and added red pepper and grated parmesan cheese to the egg mixture and it had really great flavor. Definitely recommend this recipe.
