My husband and I just really felt like spending an evening cooking something that was tasty, and kind of involved, and this was a perfect recipe for that! A lot of work, but super fun to make and eat! We took no short cuts! A agree this would serve way more than 4 people! We had tons of left over pork and sauce, but that wasn't a bad thing either "

This was very easy and tasty! Could be very versatile, adding whatever veggies you want into the soup part. We also had all ingredients at home, and it was a great way to use leftover roasted chicken (or turkey!). "

This was delicious! My family loved it, even my extremely picky 5 year old! Great way to get some healthy foods in the whole family! I did have to cook the chicken a lot longer than what was suggested. "

I should have read these reviews first :( I cooked the entire time at 375, even though I had a funny feeling it was overcooking. I should have cooked it at 325 or lower. I will give this another try though because the veggie paste looked, smelled and tasted awesome, and Ann has never let me down before. Maybe she meant to type 325???? "

I watched Ann cook this today and had to try it for dinner tonight. We experienced a propane emergency, and had to resort to the grill pan on the stove. The broccoli rabe came out just as Ann had promised! It was very yummy!! Just a word of warning to indoor grilling folks who don't have an amazing vent hood (our's is the microwave just above the...

Jun 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very yummy! Instead of boiling the garlic, I used Alton Brown's method I read about in the magazine: place cloves in a bowl with a lid and shake it until the skin comes off. Much easier, faster, and one less pot to clean! "

This was amazing! I followed all of the directions as the recipe specified the first time, and realized that there are definitely short cuts! For one, I used 3 10 oz. boxes frozen chopped spinach and added 2 portabella mushroom caps, chopped. I had read the reviews and added 1/2 tsp. cayenne and 3 cloves of garlic. I roasted the chiles the day before...

This was a hit! I had extra cheese and cream, so I made the same recipe with zucchini later in the week and it was even better! I microwaved the zucchini for four minutes rather than boiling it. This recipe will definitely be going into my book as a regular side dish!

This recipe was not a success for me. I still gave it three stars because I'm pretty sure I made some mistakes!

I read the reviews before cooking and was worried about the onions. I bought some French's Fried Onions as a back up just in case. Sure enough, I needed them! I used cremini mushrooms, and with the French's Fried Onions, it was fantastic! Plus using the store bought onions made this dish a definite keeper! Way better than the classic!
