    My mother and husband absolutely loved this!! I've made it twice in the span of 2 weeks. Husbands orders. :)) So yummy. Thank you!

    I usually like food on the blander side. Not a spicy fan at all. But this was bland beyond belief. I didn't even like the texture and I don't know why because there are other pasta ********** I do like. But my husband, who does like spicy foods, loved it. (Though he did flavor his up with red pepper flakes.)
