Review: To my surprise, this dish actually came out pretty good. The first time my aunt made this I was skeptical. Just by looking at it I thought that it wasn’t going to have flavor because I couldn’t see any spices. My aunt hid the peppers underneath the noodles and the first bite was a shock. I was amazed by how good it was and how I have never had this dish before. Definitely recommend giving this chicken scampi a try.
