    Overall very good. Cheese sauce is fantastic. Just a little bland for my taste. I added some red pepper flakes and hot sauce just to make the flavors a little more interesting. Would make again tho. My wife loved it! Tons of leftovers.

    Used Banza pasta and it worked well but this doesn’t have much flavor.

    My kids all loved this and asked for seconds! I made this a second time a few days later and added canned chilies and jalapeno in place of green peppers and subbed pepperjack for the cheddar and it was fabulous.

    Dry and bland. definitely add more flavor and don’t put in the oven. Maybe twice the sauce and cheese sauce would help it?

    My family loved this meal!!! Great pasta alternate to red/marinara sauce. We wish there was a little more sauce, but it could have been that I used small shells instead of medium. Definitely delicious, give it a try!
