    I didn't add the breadcrumbs and I thought it needed a little salt. It set well though, probably too well so I might have had a little too much pasta in there. I may try adding peas and bacon next time.  -  16 Dec 2008


    I didn't like the breadcrumbs either. My teenage daughter on the other hand who is the most fussiest of eaters, absolutely loved it!  -  22 Feb 2015
