It surely rates as comfort and I love that it's veggie!. I cut the recipe amount in half and thats 2 mighty hefty servings, I had a bout 1/4 of it and found that satisfying. Took ellie's suggestion and added some green pepper an that was a good addition. The amounts are right on mark. It says 1/2-1 cup hot water and I used the full cup, good thing too as the 4 ounces of macaroni took it all. Think I'll add some salsa next time or maybe chili powder :D.
