    NurseJaney's Note:

    I subscribe to a neat magazine called "The Week", which is the weekly version of "USA Today" There is always a recipe which is different from anything we usually eat. Loved the looks of this - was a tad daunted by the ingredient list, but after setting up everything before starting, went together easily. Made a lot for 2, but re-heated nicely. I always use more grated cheese in recipes, than listed.

      This is very impressive and so easy to make. Love a recipe that looks like you slaved over it for hours. I ended up using larger pasta (like lasagna noodles only they are about 3/4" wide) so made a bit more sauce and of course more cheese:) Baked in a 10" springform pan for 1 hour, to compensate for the size. Very satisfying and wonderful flavour. You could feed quite a few people with this as the slices don't have to be large. Especially if you are serving salad and possibly a meat dish. Thanks Nurse Janey for a great meal...with more for the freezer!!! Also, thanks for sending the Panko Crumbs...came in handy today. Made for TOTM Red Tag.

      Buddha brought home some smoked mozzarella for us to experiment with and so I needed a recipe for it, and this worked wonderfully. I Made as directed for a single serving using our mini springform pan and our own spaghetti sauce minus the anchovies. I also used spaghetti for the pasta as that is what I had on hand. The panko really adds a wonderful little crunch to this dish, and the presentation is beautiful. If you've never tried smoked mozzarella, this is a very easy and wonderful dish to try it with. Thank you Janey, for posting this great company worthy dish. :)
