I think this recipe was very good. I only used a little bit of pepper flakes and it was just right.

I love spicy food, but this is completely off the reservation in terms of heat level. I made the recipe as written, but it's way too hot. Maybe the 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper should have been 1 tsp?

I made this last night for dinner. However, I took the advice of one of the ratings. I only used a teaspoon of crushed red pepper, and when I tasted it, it was still a little to spicy for my family's liking. So I added more marinara to the mix. It was perfect! Also, I used Skim milk because that is all we drink in our house. So I did not need the cup of leftover water. This was a fabulous meal that I received a lot of compliments for. I will definitely make this again! (Just without all the red pepper) :-)
