I added fresh parsley a few red pepper flakes and pecorino or parmesan on top just before serving. Also a pinch of onion powder.

This has become one of our "go to" meals. I also found I needed to spice it up to suit our taste. Curry was a great addition!

We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe but thought it need more seasoning. We will definitely try it again with more salt and pepper.
