Everyone raved about this recipe - even my super picky 11- year old son. He's been begging me to make it again.
Perfect for those nights where I don't feel like doing too much work in the kitchen. Two easy steps steps where i can just throw it all in? Awesome, and there were plenty left over for the hubby to bring to the office next day!
This was very unappetizing. Ended up throwing out.
This dish was awesome! I added mixed steamed broccoli and carrots and peppers from green giant and make sure you get the rotel. Cookers mistake of hunt's tomatoes and green chilies. If you want spicy go for it. I will give this dish an awesome rating and Don't be afraid of experimenting! I substituted the penne with rigatoni noodles and it was awesome! Add a little wine with the dish for two and you got a wonderful meal.
I used a can of Ro Tel HOT diced tomatoes in my Chipino recipe dish and it ROCKS.
Easy and yummy recipe. We like spicy foods so i used original rotel and was a little too spicy for us. Next time I will use the mild rotel.
