This was very yummy, we added some chopped frankfurters too, this helped with hubby who likes meat at every meal. Had with some crusty bread. This is on my list as a favourite now.

I really enjoyed this dish and served with a salad or chips it will serve 4 for a lunch sized portion. I added cherry tomatoes, used three medium eggs and n extra 50mls of milk and frozen mixed peppers. Nice eaten cold for lunch.

Not enough for four people? Seriously? I did the whole recipe for two of us, based on the comments I had read and served it with salad and garlic dough balls. Other than the tweak suggested of 3 eggs and 225mls milk (which I only did as it seemed as though it might be a bit dry) I followed the recipe quantites and there was plenty! Half is in the fridge for lunch/tea tomorrow. Taste wise it's quite nice but there's not much to it in my opinion. But a great 'use up whatever leftovers you have meal' and therefore nice and cheap too.

After taking on board the comments I added celery, carrots, extra egg and milk, added quite alot of paprika to the egg mix and sprinkled chilli flakes over the pasta before putting the mixture on. It was nice but there was still something missing. Will add chilli powder next time.

yep very poor....very bland. I followed everyone's suggestions here - more pasta, much more seasoning, some spice, more varied vegetables...more milk, more egg, much more cheese.....and yeah....i thought it tasted watered down - not sure why...not idea tho. will eat the rest of it with some spicy sauce in a baguette or something!!

I will admit I found it a bit bland myself, but my boyfriend, who is a lover of stodgy carbs, said it was like a delicious, healthier macaroni cheese! It's great for having ingredients you can get at a Tesco express, and being very easy. And yes, I would say double the quantities if you really want enough for 4 people, unless you are all sparrows!

I don't rate this recipe. Seeing other people's comments I made the recipe for 4 for just 2 of us. I even added bacon and carrots and it was still only 'lunch size' and quite bland. Trouble is I also made one to freeze too! I don't think it will be coming out at dinner time.

Have just made this for tea, and I must agree with most of the comments made.......the portions given are way too small for 4 people. I doubled the quantities, and added cayenne pepper, but it tasted bland. Don't think I'll be making it again though.

Had to use up a few eggs and milk on their last legs so made this. I thought this was a bit bland, but all in all I think it is a good way to pull something together with pasta quite quickly. I'll probably make it again but like others will make a few changes/additions, maybe smoked chicken, salami etc to give more depth and flavour.

Really underwhelmed by this. Despite variety of veg, strong cheese and adding halved cherry tomatoes to the mix, we still thought it was bland. Probably good for kids though.
