We love this recipe. It is pretty much foolproof, easy and tasty. I was not sure about the 10-oz can of tomatoes with green chiles, basil, garlic and oregano. (has anyone ever found such a can?) I decided it was a mistake and use a can of mild Ro-tel and a 14-oz can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano and it comes out great. Tomorrow I will try adding a package of frozen chopped spinach, cooked and squeezed dry, to the filling.
We loved this dish on a cold night. I used mild Italian sausage and I added Italian seasoning both to the sauce and the filling. I also seasoned the filling with salt and pepper. It would have been much too bland without it.
