    I rated this several years ago, before they changed the website. We still make this, still love it, and am always proud to serve it. I use andouille sausage when I make it. It's got a good bite! My daughter-in-law made it, but put in a whole lot of the crushed pepper because she misread my recipe. I suggest you don't do that. ;-)

    This recipe has found its way to my Mardi Gras dinner every year! Wonderfully easy and quick -- this noodle dish, a green salad, and a small king's cake make Mardi Gras fun for us!
