This is so good! Will definitely make this again. The sauce has so much flavor.
I made the dish as written but thought for our family I would need to tweak it if I made it again. I really was not all that impressed, but my husband really liked it and wanted me to print up the recipe for one of his friends.
Yum! Yum! Next time I would make plenty of celery sticks to enjoy with this!
Made this today and it was really good! Read the previous reviews and also omitted the water and just used petite decided tomatoes undrained. Also used a stoneware casserole dish that is a little larger than the typical 13X9 pan, so I ended up using almost 5 noodles per layer to completely cover. It had a nice zip, not too hot, but tasted like buffalo wings! It does take a little while to prep, so I may try preparing the night before next time. Will make again for sure.
Made this for my card club shortly after seeing it in the magazine, did not change it, since it was a $25,000 winner. Everyone loved it and I am planning on making it again soon. Not changing a thing!
