    This was great and flavorful! I didn't have any tomato paste and love spicy food, so used two tsp of Sriracha chili garlic sauce and left out the salt that was called for. I think next time I will add peas as it just seemed to need something green. - 1/20/11

  • Had this last night, very good. Cannot do red pepper so increased black pepper, surprised at the heat it gave. Very good, will make again! - 9/20/10
