Really good! Simple and makes a ton. Next time I want a lighter sauce to get more of a “caprese” flavor to it. Will make again

Its alright. I would add more sauce next time if I made it.
I followed the recipe and it was a bit dry in the end, but delicious either. Maybe the number of raise the amount of pasta sauce and heavy cream, or replace the heavy cream with coconut milk that’s healthier
You will need MUCH more than 4 oz of mozzarella. I got 8 oz and still didn’t have quite enough to cover the entire dish.

Didn’t expect it to be so good!

It was amazing. Couldn’t believe my kids like it.

Made it for the family and they absolutely loved it! The only thing I changed, was adding Italian sausage to it for some protein. Will definitely be making again!

My husband loved it!
Hi, Grace 29 Dec 2017
This is so good! Its deliciously creamy flavor is outstanding with all the cheese and fresh basil. I loved this recipe but was worried about how there was no protein or meat so I chopped up some cooked chicken and threw it in. Delicious!

This is one of my favorite meatless dishes to make. I add a little more pasta sauce so that it will not dry out when I heat it in the oven.

Absolutely loved it. I didn't have any fresh mozzarella so I put the mix into an oven dish and sprinkled with grated mozzarella and baked it in the oven. DELICIOUS!!!!!!

Pretty good! I would definitely make it again. I made chicken on the side and cut it up in it.

Truly gorgeous - one of the best tasting pasta dishes I've made. Definitely worth making

It was delicious! I made it in bigger proportions, added the chicken and made my own pasta sauce which I always think is worth the wait.

Love this recipe!!!!! I always make it for and the kids! It's an easy fix & everyone loves it. Absolutely one of my faves.

This is great comfort food, though I like adding extra parmesan plus capers and olives to give it an extra lift. My carnivorous husband even enjoys a meat-free night dining on this!
Sally M. 20 Apr 2016
It turned out really well even though I probably added way more cheese than required and accidentally used the wrong cream (double instead of heavy). Even with my errors it's still an amazingly tasty dish and I'll definitely be making it again :)

This is so delicious, I use this as my go to meal to have ready on a busy day! I also add 2 tsp basil pesto in with everything before I bake it. I don't always use the heavy cream depending on whether or not I want the extra calories.
