This was a real treat. I didn't add any mozzarella over top and it was great even without it. I used Greenfield sausage meat and because it isn't spicy I added a teaspoon of Frank's Hot Sauce. The hour cook time was just right but I removed the foil for the last 20 minutes. Used Panko crumbs with Italian seasoning added. My friend enjoyed it too and ate the whole serving.
