"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
This is very good; even my picky grandchildren love it. I use turkey ham & I usually use lasagna noodles; just cook them, cut in 1/2 (across noodle), place filling on one end, fold over and place seam side down. We also like more sauce, so I make 1-1/2x's the recipe for the sauce.
