Stephanie - 21st September 2020

Very nice but felt it needed a bit more seasoning but that is personal taste. Add some rocket for an extra kick when serving

Laura - 20th September 2020

Really tasty, the pots were easily enough for more pasta than it says in the recipe, had loads of leftovers for the next day! Also added a bit more chorizo and less tomatoes than in the recipe

Amy - 19th September 2020

A bit salty, but otherwise nice

Seasoning was overpowering by the end. Felt like it only needed half of the paste.
