Top Review by Sydney Mike

I made only one insignificant change in this recipe, substituting as I did lemon pepper for the salt & pepper! Well, I did also use rotini instead of macaroni, but that's no big thing! This all came together very easily & made for a very nice mid-day meal! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef] Want to know more about PAC? Click here =
