Great Luncheon dish - I cut the recipe back to 2 servings - no problem. I used a bit more garlic than called for and used fresh chopped tomatoes with a bit of tomatoe juice. The spices are wonderful, used rotini Myrtle tree pasta. We'll have this again Thanks Karen
This recipe was just okay. I wouldn't make it again. I prefer Pasta e Ceci (the Italian version) which has much more flavor.
This is a great dish! I'll definitely make it again. Everyone really liked it.
