    Excellent - as a side dish or an appetizer! And what really great is this is so easy, yet it tastes like you spent a lot of time and effort. I used a combination of Parmesan, Romano and mozzarella cheeses to take this over the top. But, no matter what cheese you choose this is bound to be good!  -  27 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I agree...these were scrumptious. I followed the recipe exactly.  -  20 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were great. I think next time I will try some with Mozz. cheese on top. Try to use tomatoes that are more firm so they didn't get mushy as they sit.  -  22 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
