    This was great! I made it last night but I substituted ground turkey for the beef and added a little chopped spinach to the cheese mixture. I also skipped the bottled sauce and made mine using canned toms, onion, garlic, etc. We're watching our sodium around here. - 4/1/09

    You can also use cannelloni to stuff the mixture in, and they don't need to be cooked before baking. - 4/1/09

    I am not a cook by any means. I actually enjoyed putting this together and it tasted great. My husband and I both said it was going to be made again. I did use the whole jar of sauce and next time I will be adding spinach and mushrooms and re calculate it. - 3/10/09

    One of the best spark recipes by far. I felt like I was eatting something from an italian restaraunt. The entire family enjoyed. I also used lowfat cottacge cheese and lowfat mozzarella but I did not miss out on the fat. I will definately make this one again. - 1/19/09
