It was fast, easy and great. I used it to make lasagna . My uncle who is very critical gave it and 11 PLUS on a scale of 1-10. I did add alittle more red pepper flakes and my pinches of allspice were generous as I had to crush 6 whole ones to make the 2 pinches.

This was a nice easy recipe to put together. I followed the recipe exactly, but I did use Barilla Plus penne pasta. I did feel this recipe was missing something..I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe next time I will put a full tsp of the red pepper flakes to give it more oomph.
