MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 23, 2014

"Easy and good. I thought it had just the right blend of pepperoni spiciness to creaminess. Wouldn't really call it carbonara though."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2014

"I thought this tasted amazing. Maybe a tad too many sundries tomatoes. I used a dry pack thinking it was enough but it only measured to one cup. I made up the other cup with some tomatoes I had in oil. Like the previous reviewer, I washed all the oil off & soaked them with the dry. Didn't notice the difference between them in the recipe, but like I said it was too much. Still really good though. Next time I'll just use the one dry pack."
