"Delicious! This recipe is a keeper. The next time I would like to add some peas or frozen mixed vegetables to round it out."

"Very good but you can taste the yogurt and if you don't care for that flavor this might not suit you."

"I haven't made this yet, but it sounds yummy, and withthe weather turning cooler, just the thing on a chilly evening! I think I might cut back on the amount of noodles, maybe to 3 cups or so, and add some thawed frozen veggies, like broccoli, or green beans, to cut some calories and carbs and add color and nutrition! It would make it amore of a one dish meal!"
