This was an amazing dish, I used dry oregano and it wasn't too overpowering. This had great flavor. I adjusted the seasoning as I saw fit after bringing the sauce together. Ended up adding a bit more garlic powder and salt to taste. Very tasty.

We had it for a lent meal. My fiance really hates veggies or when we have meatless meals but he loved this recipe, even when he reheated it for lunch at work. I will definitely make it again.

This dish was rather dry. I assembled it the day before and then baked it as directed (per the test kitchen notes). Flavor was good but on the bland side. I used fresh oregano. I will try this dish again but will use 1.5 times the liquid mixture and will add some pesto for flavor. It's possible that the dryness was caused by the early prep but the notes state that you can do this; the dish sat in the refrigerator for less than 20 hours.

Anyone know if this could be made and then frozen for later reheating/cooking? I'm always looking for dishes like that.

Take out the oregano and it might be passable. As is the oregano is very strong and overwhelms the dish.

If you want to retain me as an interested party, you will have to offer the metric values that the REST OF THE WORLD uses eg Stop talking Fahrenheit, give the Celsius = Drop pounds, and offer grams/kilos. When did we start buying Butter by the Tablespoon? Haven't bumped into a Supermarket yet that sold it that way...hello, it's a solid at room temperature! Basic chemistry. Thought America was supposed to lead the world, not drag it back to the 18thC
