If you don't like marinara sauce, a nice cream sauce or traditional pasta sauce will suffice.

If it's got tons o' cheese, chances are I'm going to like it! Indeed, I LOVE these. Simple as they are, they pack one big flavor punch. I add a little garlic to the cheese when I make 'em, but season to your liking. The Test Kitchen
