This is a very easy recipe to prepare. I found it bland as it is written, I did a taste test and then added some garlic and more spices. With that little tweaking it was quite good.

Delicious one pan meal -- I skipped the butter and the oregano (used 1 tsp of basil instead). By the way this reheats great in the microwave -- another plus for a delicious and easy dinner! thanks for sharing!

This was excellent, fast and easy to make. I did however have to add beef broth to the mix because it did need more to cook the noodles. defiantly a keeper
