"I followed the recipe exactly. I was very disappointed and would not make again. I don't know if there wasn't enough liquid to properly cook the noodles, but the noodles turned out gummy. Also the overall flavor was too sweet."

"I tweeked this recipe a little bit I added half a jar of sauce and water, i think that an extra can of tomatoe soup and can of diced tomatoes would have worked well but i only had 2 cans of the soup. I also added a few pinches of chili powder. No leftovers so it must have been good. thanks!"
