Review: AMAZING. Loved the flavor, loved the bell pepper crunch, great spicy overall but not too overpowering - LOVED. It reheated well too, retaining it's flavor and not drying out the noodles. Everyone at work was like WOW - that smells amazing! :) Thanks, Pam, for another great recipe! You never fail me! :)
