Really good taste but if I made again, I would breadcrumb the bread instead of chunks as the chunks of bread were extremely hard and crunchy. Also, the mozzarella was overcooked so I would put that in a bit later than everything else.

25 minutes at 200 degrees C is far too long for mozzarella. It comes out like leather. There is no mention of seasoning. Personal taste I guess.

This was a super recipe! Beautiful flavours and the perfect amount for four. We'd added some chicken into the bake and served with a simple salad. Would highly recommend!

Instead of using bread, I serve the bake with some penne pasta
