    It would be nice to know what constitutes a "serving." When entering recipes, one should say the amount, such as 1 cup. That way, it is easier to track calories. - 12/15/11

    Tasty! I substituted quinoa for the noodles and Rotel for the tomato. I was making this with what I could find around the house. - 2/12/12

    Great recipe! I substituted cajun spice for the red pepper (still spicy, but a bit more smokey), parsnip for the potato and barley for the pasta. Yum! - 10/6/10
