      So easy and tasty! My family loved this and I loved how easy and quick it was to throw together. I used green peas. I didn't use the currants, but otherwise followed the recipe as stated. Thanks Jen! Made for veg*n swap 2. :)

      Wow, very very different, very very nice!!! I thought I had tri-colour rotini and didn't, sigh, so I used plain rotini, and I omitted the currants.. not a currant lover. I used the frozen peas option. I would never have thought of cooking pasta in a 'milk' broth like this, with the spices used, but I have to tell you, it was magnificent, we absolutely loved it :D and I will definitely be making it again, it's all stuff that I generally have on hand so great for those evenings when you came home and just want something quick and easy! I think it works extremely well with the rotini, or fusilli, so I will be sure to always have a packet in the pantry. Thanks Jen, for another great recipe :D
