I got this recipe years ago from the nutrition department at Mass General Hospital. The hospital used to serve this in their cafeteria. Tasty and easy. I also use the filling for calzones and lasagna.

You can lighten up the recipe by using low fat cheeses and sour cream plus egg substitute if desired.
