Notes: oh wow, this is such a good dish!!! You can use any kind of sauce you want, or make your own, but this is really a quick dish. It is so homey and perfect, I am telling you! You can mix up the cheeses, add spices to it, anything you like, which is what I like. You can make 10 different dishes in one meal. I made this to have extra and ended up eating 2 and sharing 2. I must make more next time! The wine is really what seals the deal. You can add red if you want. I threw in what was in the fridge. Eat this and relax!
