This recipe is very good. I jazzed up the cream sauce (which I made with parsley instead of cilantro for personal preference) with a bit of lime juice and some cumin, but I think everything was pretty fantastic. I made the casserole more mild to share with the kids, but I think it would be even better kicked up to full spice. A very easy, very satisfying meal.

I made half a recipe of this which served us not only dinner but several lunches for me as well. While it was tasty, it was mostly the result of my having added more spices to the pasta part. The cream sauce was excellent! I made mine using rice. You can use any pasta or rice with this that you happen to have on hand. I would make this recipe again, changing up the spices again. Thanks!

It needs smaller pasta. Macaroni. Quinoa?
