MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

This was a tasty recipe, but my family thought it was too dry & rather plain. Throwing in some salsa helped, I thought, but won't make again. However, it was quick to make!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 28, 2011

Seemed a little blah, like it was missing something-maybe a veggie-not quite sure. 3 of 5 liked so I think I 'll try it again.

MY REVIEW

THE ONLY PASTA I HAD WAS MACARONI AND MY FAMILY THOUGHT I MADE HAMBURGER HELPER! I ADDED EXTRA MILK AND CHEESE. I WILL MAKE THIS AGAIN FOR SOMETHING QUICK AND EASY (THATS NOT EXACTLY FROM A BOX!:)

MY REVIEW

Perhaps doubling the ingredients for the sauce would create a dish that is less dry.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2009

I thought this was a tad too dry. Mine needed more "sauce". My family ate it but this is not one they will ask me to make again.
