Everybody loved this one...we have a family of 6, so this made enough to feed the whole family plus some left overs. Next time I want to add mushrooms, or even we could make it a "hawaiian" kind (just top with deli ham slices, pineapple, and Mozzarella cheese). mmmm :) Leftovers (if there are any....) are pretty good too!! *I served this with Salad
