"It sounds so good. But my husband and teens did not like it real well. It is very flavorful and unique. So have to scratch it off my lst."

"The easiest and quickest meal I've ever made. A little tangy depending on which kind of pulled pork you buy with the BBQ sauce already mixed in."

"I gave this five stars as I thought it was very tasty. I don't exactly love store bought BBQ but the pasta and veggies gave it a nice twist. This would be a great office potluck dish you could keep warm in a crockpot. Will make again."

"This was great!!! My husband and picky teenage son really liked it. I thought it was delicious also. I don't understand the comment that said it was bland. It wasn't bland at all, in fact it had quite a kick to it and was VERY tasty. I used Lloyd's BBQ Shredded Pork. Maybe they used some other brand? Also I used the Original Tomatoes w Green Chilis and it is more spicy than the mild version. Using what I spent (some ingredients were on sale), I found this meal to be around $1.50 per person which is a real bargain."
