Quedan deliciosas!! A mis hijos pequeños les encantaron, felicitaciones, es una receta riquísima. Un poco elaborada pero vale la pena, no les puse nada de sal ni pimienta, aún así quedaron deliciosas, con la sal del panela y del queso, las especias de la salsa de tomate, se sazono bien. Yo en vez de salsa de tomate normal,usé salsa de tomate para pasta boloñesa marca Hunts.
