    FrenchBunny's Note:

    This has such a blend of wonderful spices and is so creamy. My friend gave me this recipe such a long time ago and I make it over and over again. Everyone loves it. I change the pasta's sometimes but it always turns out delicious. It can be frozen as well after cooking and turns out great.

      I have to say...this is one of my PAC babies, so I won't reflect any displeasure in the rating as long as it is a good recipe and this is an excellent tasting recipe!. However the directions are a little confusing. I'd rework the directions and more people would make this wonderful recipe! Made as posted except I added garlic to the meat mixture. I just can't stand the smell of the mix with out garlic!

      I haven't made this recipe but must admit that it sounds tasty. The calorie and fat content scarred me away.
