      I made this for the " A Taste of Yellow 2008 "and "April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge " and last but not least our dinner on 5/20/08.Due to lack of time I had to make a few changes to the recipe.I used 2 teaspoons dried minced onion, 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder the full amount of basil and thyme, and 2 Tablespoons of dried red and green bell pepper flakes.Also since there was just SO and myself, I cut the recipe in half.I did however have to add about a total of a cup and a half of water to get the pasta cooked to the way we liked it.And since we are cheese addicts the full amount was left as is.This was a very good recipe and it will be made again. Thank you for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"

      Just as easy to make as Hamburger Helper mix, but yummier! I made this as written, but I needed to add more water. Great for kids and adults. Thanx for a quick, yummy meal.

      This was not as good as I thought it would be. My family and I thought it could use more spices. I will make this again, but I think that next time I would increase the garlic and add some oregano. It was however, a very easy dish to prepare.
