Was looking for a quick and easy dish and this was ideal. Added birds eye chilis to up the heat as we like things spicy and it tasted great! Will be keeping these ingredients on hand to be able to make this in a pinch! - 14 Oct 2009


Yuk. A complete waste of good ingredients - 12 Feb 2013


Unfortunately it was a little too sickly for me, but I may try again, altering the ingredients a little bit - 26 Oct 2012
