Total perfection! I loved this and I am not a red sauce person. I did adjust to my own personal liking the following....I used 1 lb of hot Italian sausage and 1.5 lbs of ground turkey.

I reversed the cheese amounts (8oz Gruyere and 12oz cheddar) and also used panko on top. HEAVENLY, yes yes yes. I am in love with this recipe. Oh and I did not use the tomatoes per the request of the man of the house although I think it would of been amazing under those panko bread crumbs. *crispy crunchy tomatoes over cheese sounds good to me*

I loved this, only change I would make is make it 3lbs of potatoes and put it in a 9x13 pan to broil. Soo Good! I served this with a side of steamed broccoli.
