MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 23, 2011

I made this for a friend who had twins and her husband raved! We love to make this and put the extra pan in the freezer for a quick mean on a busy night.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2010

We were expecting a little more kick. I think next time I might use more spicy sausage than just 1lb. Not having to cook the noodles did make it much easier.

MY REVIEW

I love the flavor of this recipe and how easy it is to make. Not having to boil the noodles saves not only time and effort but dishes!
