  • This was great very creamy! Will make again! - 2/18/09

  • I like the flavor, but we prefer more spice. I cooked the beans in with the onions too long I think as they got mushy when everything was mixed. Also, I did not use all the pasta as it seemed like too much. I am going to try it again, only with less pasta and perhaps raw onion and garlic.QUICK! - 2/12/09
