  • I made this recipe but I only added 1 cup of salsa and didn't add the green peppers. I also added a can of stewed tomatos. Instead of onions I put in onion powder. I used 8 oz of wheat pasta bows. - 8/19/09

  • I also couldn't find the original version of this recipe. The original differed from above: 8 oz pasta, 1 cup salsa, no onion. I added lime juice, minced jalapeno, and minced garlic. It was amazing and so easy!! One of my all-time favorites. - 7/10/09
