This came from a book and it looked good, so I saved it for us to try one day.

I made this recipe on 9/18 for Bargain Basement Tag Sept.2012. I did follow the recipe as it was written, even gently stirring after 7 minutes. Even after 15 minutes, the pasta wasn't completely done.So if I do make this again, I just might cover the dish with a bit of plastic, to get the pasta fully cooked. Also if this is made again, I'm going to add either a bit of garlic powder or crushed red pepper flakes to give it more of a " punch of flavor ". Thanks for taking the time to post.
