    I feel that I have to rate this recipe because one persons bad review has brough the rating down. This is a simple and delicious recipe. It is best if you use unflavoured breadcrumbs.  -  25 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was awful!! Made it for a party and I can't say anyone really enjoyed it. If it hadn't been for my husband's homemade spaghetti sauce we served with it, this would have been a huge flop!! Definitely will not make again.  -  16 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
