Absolutely wonderful! It took a little longer than I expected, but it is delicious! I will make this recipe again!

Kind of bland. A lot of work for a mediocre dish. Probably good for little kids.

My son really enjoyed this one. I would suggest adding more cheese though.

I will have to agree with the other reviewers. This is a "basic" starting recipe; and you will need to add more seasoning for your liking. But it was a great "starter".
