    Better to make the pasta first and then add the milk, etc. Took me 50 minutes to soften the noodles making them in the milk!

    I used this resume and it was too easy, I actually used a different type of pasta and lots of mozzarella cheese. It was yummy. I did notice that there is no information on the directions on when to add the salt, pepper, and paprika. If I didn't watch the video I would not have known when to add those items listed in the recipe.
