  • Good
    wonderful flavor, but I found the recipe a little hard to follow. No mention whether pasta is stirred in or layered, and the spices are listed in ingredients but not in instructions. I just improvised and it turned out really well, but I wonder if that's why some people haven't had good luck - 9/9/11
