Made this as is. A good recipie with just a little kick. Nothing spectacular to note but I will be making it again.

Spruced this a bit... Added 1tsp worchestshire sauce + a pinch of dill and pinch of parsley and added some salt , pepper and cilantro instead of crushed red pepper. Substituted skim milk for the...

Not spectacular dish, but a good, easy and filing one for family.
