Very good, added some spinach and ricotta cheese to the mixture. Also, let it cook for 30 minutes before throwing the cheese on top and letting it melt.

I assumed TVP is a generic term and used "no meat sausage", which I browned with green onions and musrooms. I followed someone's earlier advice and switched to a 4-cheese blend. And I couldn't...

This was a great, easy recipe. I added a bit of onion and garlic for more flavor as well as a small amount of hamburger meat instead of the meat substitute. thank you for a good recipe.
