    We really liked this recipe. We had lots of leftovers, which is good. Just put remander in casarole dish and reheat. I had just one falt. Everyone should know by now that you NEVER put fresh herbs in a dish to simmer. Basil is very tender. you should tare it if you don't have a VERY sharp knife. And ONLY put in at the end, just before your dish is served.

    Another keeper, Kraft! My husband raved about this one. Added italian blend of herbs, and used a can of diced tomatoes that was flavoured with garlic and cracked pepper. Forgot to put the cheese on top, but it didn't even need it.
