I may have liked this a lot better if my husband hadn't doubled the red pepper flakes....it was too spicy, but I will make it again and keep my husband out of the kitchen while I'm doing so! Lol!!
this was quick and very good. We added some gorgonzola cheese on top of ours and it added the right taste.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. So easy and delicious.
Loved this, very spicy for my little kids though. Will cut back on the spices next time cause there will be a next time.
