I made this for Adopt-a-Chef and really enjoyed it! It is quite easy to make and tasted delicious. It is very filling! I will definitely make this recipe again. I did not add any salt to mine, although my cooking buddy thought it did need salt and added some to hers when we ate it. I had to add about 2 1/2 cups water with the semolina - no specific amount is listed. It ended up very thick even with that, which is how I thought it was supposed to end up.
