    This recipe is from an Afghan cookbook that came out in the 1990's. I think that the restaurant was in Minnesota. Their recipies were very good.

      I think the flavors in this are just terrific. I found the pasta packets a little difficult. Howevrr, if you let them cool a minute in the steamer, they do not stick or break open.
