I cooked it for the full amount of time the recipe says and it came out fine. It was definitely a family pleaser, which I appreciate since they're picky. I added a little less pepper flakes and salt, and my family said it could use more seasoning. Make sure to layer it properly since I messed up and ended up with noodles on top an they didn't cook all the way. They loved it and ate seconds. Next time I'll make english muffin garlic bread to go with it!
