My family loved this recipe -- and it was fulling and I got two dinners out of one pan. Score!
I tried this recipe and with the recommended amount of red wine, the sauce ended up tasting exactly like red wine. I had to dilute it with water and then when that didn't work, added in cheese to change the taste and texture. I wouldn't make this again.
Great recipe - and a great combination of flavors! The only thing I did differest was using fresh spinach instead of eggplant. I love the addition of the kalamata olives! This was a nice twist on regular baked ziti. It paired great with a garden salad, warm bread, and a glass of wine.
Always great with Johnsonville! So easy to make and always turns out like a gourmet dish. I alter the ingredients based on what I have on hand, but using the core ingredients you can't go wrong.
This was pretty good. I added about half of the wine it called for based on the comments by another reviewer that the wine was overpowering. I added a pinch of dried oregano and about 3/4 teaspoon of sugar to make it not so acidic.
If you love Mediterranean flavors, you will love this dish. I followed the recipe with the exception of using dried basil instead of the fresh. I also didn’t bother with broiling the cheese at the end because my results when I use a broiler are usually disastrous. We enjoyed this dish and thought it was very good.
