  • INCREDABLE SATISFYING AND DELICIOUS - 10/25/09

  • was trying to get rid of things I had on me so I made this recipe, cause it used some of those items. I made a few changes though. I used crumbled tofu instead of TVP and mushroom spaghetti sauce instead of cheese sauce. I thinly sliced some potatoes and added it on top and baked it. Good, thanks. - 3/5/09

    That's what I usually do- throw in the veggies and sauce that I have on hand! I wanted the nutritional data to be correct for my tracking, so I listed exactly what I had used this time. I'll have to try it with the potatoes on top sometime. That sounds good!
