Initially skeptical, I gave this recipe a shot as it was at the top of my RSS feed, and the only recipe for which I already had the ingredients. Not bad! While cooking, it struck me as a little bland, but after a few more minutes, all the flavors combined into a surprisingly filling dish with some decent heat. Not slimy at all - excellent on a bed of orzo. Would make an excellent presentation for a hunk of grilled beef or lamb.
