Mandi sent this recipe to the group. By the time I ended up changing things for what I did and didn't have on hand it was totally different LOL We liked it but I don't think I'd make it again because of the bread portion...the texture ends up weird for me.
I put mushrooms and red bell pepper in just to add some fresh veggies but then I went to get the cheddar and didn't have any so I subbed mozzarella and cheddar would have been much better!
