    Not bad but not particularly good either. Easy enough to make but not as good as I expected

    Easy and tasty! I think the cherry tomatoes would be better quartered, since the halves felt too big and out of place. I let it broil for the last few minutes to make sure the cheese browned on top and it turned out great.

    Easy and delicious! I doubled the recipe, only thing I’d have done differently was to make more sauce!

    Great recipe. Substituted dried basil as I couldn't get fresh and added some olives. Kids loved it!

    instead of putting it in the oven I let it simmer for 15 minutes. i also added chicken fillets in and it was so delicious.

    Delicious, I make this whenever I crave pink pasta. I added chicken for a source of protein.

    I wouldn't have baked it. Prefer the freshness of slightly melted cheese, tomatoes and basil.
    I was short on Mozarella by about 200 g; used extra Parmesan instead...very delicious recipe 😋...added some chicken pre-fried and seasoned with lemon pepper, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. This one’s a must try 😊👍👌

    It was very delicious, my picky 9 year old ate it without complaining. I added twice the sauce and cream trying to avoid how pasta dries out when baked, it was still dry. I think next time I'll just mix it on the stovetop and serve.

    Really good! Simple and makes a ton. Next time I want a lighter sauce to get more of a “caprese” flavor to it. Will make again

    Its alright. I would add more sauce next time if I made it.

    I followed the recipe and it was a bit dry in the end, but delicious either. Maybe the number of raise the amount of pasta sauce and heavy cream, or replace the heavy cream with coconut milk that’s healthier

    You will need MUCH more than 4 oz of mozzarella. I got 8 oz and still didn’t have quite enough to cover the entire dish.

    It was amazing. Couldn’t believe my kids like it.

    Made it for the family and they absolutely loved it! The only thing I changed, was adding Italian sausage to it for some protein. Will definitely be making again!
