Not that great. Make Giada's Orechiette with turkey sausage and broccoli rabe instead. It's very similar and twice as tasty.

Flat out my favorite cookie now. Made last week with Andes. 35 cookies, 13 min was perfect. Today substituted two Heath bars chopped up for Andes. Delish. Going to experiment with different additions. Base chocolate cookie is just superb.

There is potential with this dish. Even though I cut the amount of peppers in half, all I tasted was tomatoes and heat. It needs more herbs, less spice. I suggest you make it according to the directions and then decide what changes you'd like to make to it next time. Maybe adding some fish or fish sauce would help too.

Amazing. I used quick cook grits and chicken broth. I don't see how this could be any better. It was so good, and not too rich for our tastes. Can't wait to make it again. Oh, I halved the recipe for the two of us with no issues."

I have to agree with those that found it bland. I added garlic, but it needs more seasoning. I've made at least a dozen other of Giada's recipes, and this was the first disappointment."
