Top Review by Baby Kato

We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make dish Doug. It was so good and was even better the next day. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite. I did add a little more of the red pepper flakes (personal preference only). Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Made FYC tag game 2015.
