Props for ease of preparation! I left the sauce on the side since we like different levels of 'sauciness'. I added some onion and some garlic just because I had them. Kids enjoyed it and even the meat loving hubby had seconds! Read More

Very quick and easy which is what I was looking for so for that I give it 5 stars. As written it could be a bit more flavorful so don't be afraid to add to di your own magic with seasoning. I also added grilled chicken breast strips Read More

The receipe calls for 1 tablespoon (is way too much Pepper). We only added 1 tsp and even that was too much. Next time; we'll reduce to 1/4 tsp. Also next time we'll try and add some pre-cooked chicken or even salmon. Thanks for the receipe. Read More
