This recipe was very good, but it was very hot! I followed the recipe exactly except for I only used 1TBS of the Red pepper flakes and it still came out too hot for my DH to eat. I even double checked to make sure I added the correct ingredient and I did. I will definitely make it again, but I will leave out the crushed red pepper entirely.
What a great and inexpensive dinner that feeds a large amount and is great for OAMC! Thanks!
