"Unless you are a huge fan of curry powder, I wouldn't use 2-3 teaspoons as the recipe suggests. I used 1/2 a teaspoon and it was plenty! Still got the great curry flavor!"

"My husband loves this recipe so during the summer I make it often. I've tweeked it a little though. I use rotini pasta and I alternate between tomoatoes, cucumbers, peppers and shredded carrots as the added vegies. I use what I have on hand. I also use the spicy brown mustard. It makes a large bowl and it disappears fast!"
