I only used half the jerk seasoning and this was plenty hot enough for us! Lots of flavour and a nice kick, this was enjoyed by all of us. I doubled the recipe for 4 of us and used some leftover spaghetti instead of fettucine. The one recommendation I would give is to add some red pepper or something else for some colour as it is all beige. Made for my fellow Tasty Tester. Thanks ElizabethKnicely! :)
