  • “A little bland for my taste.Perhaps just a touch of dried red chili pepper.”

  • “The ingredients of this recipe, are common staples on my shelf.That is why I like this recipe and also it tastes good.Some red pepper might help to add a little more color.I like the photo*Parsley* posted with the paprika sprinkled on top. I%u2019d like to try some red chili pepper next time I make this, adding ? tsp at a time and see what happens.Made for THE ALL YOU CAN COOK BUFFET – Winter Special Event”
