I made this for dinner the other evening. It turned out really good. I added shredded cheddar to the top after it had cooked for about 15 minutes. Added a tossed salad at the table. The whole family enjoyed it … picky teenagers and all :)

Yummy! Added grated cheddar cheese to the top after 15 minutes in the oven. Continued baking until cheese was melted and bubbly. Enjoyed by all – including picky teenagers.
