      We rather enjoyed this very nicely. The extra vegys were a nice addition. I'm not a hugh fan of fennel so I was tempted to use rosemary instead, after reading the reviews. I felt it would change the flavour of the dish quite abit so decided to try the fennel, just cut it back to 3/4 tsp. I think secret is in the toasting & grinding of the fennel, we loved it. I used homemade marinara sauce (#256373 from Potluck) which had great flavour also. Other than that I increased the beef & cheeses abit. Thanks for sharing.

      This was amazing! Great WW recipe! Used one can of diced tomatoes and one container of marinara sauce. Also used low-fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese. Thanks Robin! :)
