Super fast and the kids loved it, which is always five stars at my house! I omitted the green pepper and used whole milk instead of evaporated because I was out. Great recipe for a busy weeknight that's as easy as, and so much better nutritionally, than one of those boxed meals. Also cheap, using ingredients always on hand. I would suggest fresh garlic, because it does add so much flavor. Also found that the skillet should be covered while cooking the pasta. Thanks, Liz, for a great recipe!
