Hi Teri!

I am from the Netherlands, Europe. In the ingredients list there is stated eg: 1 T. red pepper flakes

tsp = teaspoon?
T= tablespoon?

Just wondering.. what makes the fat grams so high in this recipe? Sounds amazing, but I don’t see anything that would push the fat grams over 14 grams..

This is delicious!
I wanted to try to make it in a shorter time frame- is it possible to cook it on high? For how long do you recommend?

It says to blend the ingredients, do you mean to actually blend them using a blender or food processor? Or do you mean just to mix them by hand?

Hi! Does the cooking time need to be adjusted if I make a smaller portion? Don’t want it to overcook since there’s less to cook! Thanks.

Was this a little on the spicy side? I did let it sit on warm and maybe it got spicer as it sat? Maybe I’ll try less red pepper flakes next time

Has anyone tried adding more vegis? Would like to add as many as possible. Thinking of Green or Red Peppers? But would love to hear what others have tried.

We loved this recipe. It was a bit to spicy for my family so we will definitely leave out the pepper next time. We have a ton of leftovers – can you give me some more suggestions for what to do with them?

Hi Jenn,

Could I leave out the tomato paste? I hate to buy a can and not use all of it.

I just put this on. after I mixed it all up I realized I added a can of tomato paste rather than just the 2 tbs…will it ruin it?

Making this for the 2nd time tomorrow, it was a HUGE hit first go round. I served it on flat-bread with a little sprinkle of cheese….some dipped in ranch, some left as is. Smells great while cooking and so easy. Thanks a bunch!

Oh my gosh I only used 1/2 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes instead of the 1 tablespoon and it’s got a kick to it which is fine for me but my kids couldn’t tolerate it. Next time im going to have to omit that entirely. Otherwise the flavor is great.

Can you cook the pasta in the crock during the extra 30 to 1 hour time, or is it better to cook separate and then add?
