"I saw this recipe in the magazine & knew I had all the ingredients so I gave it a shot. Next time I will search for the recipe online if I find one I like in the magazine. I love spicy dishes but there was way too much crushed red pepper. Once you got past that, I agree with everyone else because it was incredibly bland. I'm going to add jarred alfredo sauce to the leftovers because I hate wasting food and this is borderline inedible on its own."
