MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 23, 2010

I made this a few years ago and completely forgot about it.. just made it again tonight and it was as good as I remembered. I cut the recipe in half to serve 2, but i still made the full amount of sauce, and it was only slightly too much sauce, so if I made it for 4 people, i would probably double the sauce.
