"Made this last week and it was a HIT! Everyone loved it. I made a side of pasta as there was so much sauce. I also had plenty of leftover stuffing so I used in some stuffed mushrooms. I did use prosciutto instead of panchetta as I prefer it more. The key is to plan ahead and do all the prep work you can so when your ready to sear the meat an"
"Made this last night and the family loved it. The chewy nutty grain is so different and good. Hard to find though. I recommend you call ahead to save yourself some driving around. I found it at a high end grocery store. This receipe is a keeper. It makes alot. I recommend cutting it in half if just for a few people
"Just made these and they are delicious! I didnt even get to the glaze part and they were awesome. So easy to make too.""
I made this last night but instead of egg plant I used 3 large zuchinnis as I do NOT like egg plant. The ricotta mixture was delicious! I also made my own sauce as I wanted a meat sauce instead. This is a keeper.""
"Made this the other night and really enjoyed it. I used the poor mans saffron; turmeric. It worked out well just use a little bit. I looked into the saffron but it was TOO expensive. I also used chicken stock instead of vegetable as that's what I had on hand.
I will make this again. I just love watching the show!""
"The family loved it! Will be making this again. I used honey as I did not have agave nectar. I couldn't find fried rice noodles so I use Chow Mein Noodles. I thought they socked up to much of the liquid so I would prefer to put them on top rather then mix them in next time.""
"I have made this two ways. Once with the water as Nigella says and the second time used chicken stock and like it much better. I also added some black pepper. This is great on a cold day. Be very careful when you put in blender as mine went everywhere even with a towel on the lid.( Not sure of the dos and don'ts for hot liquid in a blender)""
"Delicious. I was given a similar receipe about 10 years ago, before Food Network and the only difference was adding 1 onion. Chop it small and saute with the butter till soft, cool then add to the rest of the mix. Just adds more flavor.""

I will definatley make this again. I just love watching the show!""
"Delicious! Made this today for hubby and I and loved them. I did not buy the Manchego as it was very expensive, so I just used swiss cheese. I will deffintely make again but will splurge on the Manchego. (Guyere would also work.)""
"Made this on Monday for a party and it was a hit. I used scoops chips per someone recomendation and it worked well. But next time I think I will use bread as the dip is very soft and the bread will still cut through it."
"A hit with the family. Made this the other night. I followed some of the reveiwers comments regarding adding more chicken and use less of the sauce. I couldnt find dried chipotle chiles so I used 2 chipotes in adobe and seeded them too. I also couldnt find queso fresco so I used another mexican cheese. Will make this again. I fryed up the extra corn tortillas and used the remaining sauce as a dip! The sauce is amazing!"
"Lots of flavor!
Made this today and loved the flavor! I bought kale instead of swiss chard, but Im sure it was similar in taste. My husband rather I leave it out all together. I watched her make it quite a while ago but didnt make it till today. I followed the printed directions but next time I think I will fry the pancetta first then add the vegatables. I prefer my pancetta/bacon crispy. (Maybe she did it that way initially, I dont remember and as we know what they do and what is printed is not always the same) I only had grated parm and went ahead and used that but I think the rind would work better. Well make again for sure.
