We followed the recipe exactly, except for adding a BIT more sauce towards the end. We’re sauce people. We like to have a lot of it. My teens thought it was a bit spicy, but my husband and I tho...

Really fast, really easy, really tasty! Except for the fresh parsley, which I keep growing by the back door, everything is a pantry item. Dinner was ready in a flash.
