Personal Notes:
*If I have time I like to make my own sauce or a couple of cans of Cento Italian style Tomato Sauce is delicious too.

Dad prefers this with a meat sauce but I like it best just as recipe is. The addition of a meat sauce distracts from the cheese filling. For me it's all about the Cheese!
