Mediterranean Pasta
Delicious! If you do not like greek/mediterranean flavors (i.e tangy cheese and salty olives) this recipe is obviously not the choice for you. However, if you are like me and LOVE those flavors this recipe is a huge winner! My husband said it was just ok, but he prefers a richer type sauce with his pasta. The rest of the family loved this dish and I think the flavor combinations are perfect. Not too tangy, not too salty. I changed a few things only slightly. I used chopped kalamata olives and mixed it into the dish just before serving. I used 5 pieces of bacon and cooked them crisp and added them at the very end right before I added the olives. I sprinkled the chicken with Montreal Chicken seasoning then browned it in olive oil and not the bacon grease. I added about 1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan and a sprinkling of fresh chopped Italian parsley just before serving. After I drained the noodles, I tossed them with the sauce right in the sautee pan so the noodles really absorbed the flavor. A+ in my book, thanks for sharing!

Hello Dollies I
Awesome! I used chopped macadamia nuts instead of pecans and used a combination of semi-sweet chocolate, butterscotch and milk chocolate chips sprinkled on top and my family emptied the pan in a day and a half and asked me to make more. This from a group that usually turns their nose up at anything with coconut and nuts in it! My oven is tempermental so I had to bake this for almost 40 minutes but the result was fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies
These were wonderful! Very very close to being as good as one of the better boxed mixes! I used an 8x8 pan, added 2 tbls of chocolate syrup and a handful of chocolate chips, used melted butter instead of the oil as some of the other reviewers had done. I ended up baking for almost 30 minutes. Do NOT over bake! Be sure to remove these when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it, and NOT getting to the point where the toothpick would come out completely clean. You will have a super fudgy, moist brownie. I wish it was a tad bit more chewy, but wouldn't mess with the recipe because it really is SO good and SUPER easy. It is nice and chocolatey so I don't think I really needed to add the chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe! YUM!
