My husband LOVES these. I make them for dinner fairly regularly, and he ends up enjoying them more than I do! The last time I made them I had no cream cheese so I used fat free ricotta- it was even better than the original. I do agree that adding spinach to the filling a must. Yum! Submitted by:

These were great! A lot easier than I though! In the filling I added shredded zucchini and carrot for more nutrition! I also included spinach instead of mushrooms, because my family doesnt eat mushrooms! Overall, great recipe!!!!! Submitted by:

I love the high protein, and I can take out the pasta for my banded stomach and just add more veg. It's perfect as a hot, filling meal on a cold day. Submitted by:

I thought this recipe was Great! Very satisfying. I did add some chopped fresh spinach and couldn't find non-fat mozzarella, so I used low-fat, this added 4.5 grams of fat. I will definately make this again! Submitted by:

Very tasty. I also added some spinach and used fresh garlic since I have no idea what granulated garlic is. Like another reviewer, I found it to be a bit salty, but I think that was more a result of the type of marinara sauce I used, rather than a flaw with the recipe. Will try again with new sauce Submitted by:

I cooked these when my vegetarian brother was over during the Thanksgiving holiday. They turned out really good, and are very easy to make! The only thing was, I had not idea what granulated garlic was, so I ended up using a tsp of garlic salt..too much for me, but everyone else loved them!! Submitted by:

this was very good but I added veggies to it....chopped spinach, a little grated onion and some grated carrots I mixed the veggies in with the cheeses. I'm big on throwing extra veggies in where ever I can. I want my kids to get lots of veggies and it helps cut down a little on the calories in dish Submitted by:

This sounds delicious! I will have to make it using something other than fat free, though, because anything that is free of fat is VERY high in sodium! I don't like mushrooms, so those have to go.
I hate having to choose between high fat or high sodium. :-((

With the exception of cottage cheese I just can't handle fat-free cheeses... don't mind the reduced fat, tho. And herbs - much better with fresh! Dried rosemary just doesn't compare... CHERRYTD, you must have used a spicy oregano, and some garlic can have a bite, too. Submitted by:

Try it with fat free ricotta and fresh garlic for a slightly different twist. My husband and 10 y o daughter enjoy them too. Submitted by:
