Adorable, dreamy little pasta stars simmered with tomatoes, green chillies, onion, herbs and seasoning. A lovely alternative to Spanish rice or as a side with Mexican food dishes. You can find stelle or stellini star shaped pastas and tinned tomatoes with green chillies online or at Hispanic food shops.
I used 3 bouillon cubes instead of the powder and a little extra cumin and this was a very nice change from rice. Thanks! - 26 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good starter recipe. Needs a little more flavor. A little adobo powder would be a great addition. - 03 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a good change of pace for side dish on Mexican night; however, I agree with the reviewers who say it needs more spice. I forgot to add some adobe powder as suggested and will give that a try. - 31 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
