"quick and easy recipe! Very easy to adapt the serving size when making it for a family! I made it when it was hot and humid. This recipe took no effort and tasted great! I thought that it had quite a bite which is a good thing. Instead of noodles, I coupled it with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. Definately a keeper!"
