It seemed very dry so I added a small tin of tomato soup and it was delicious. Just the right consistency for us, which is fairly thick. Thank you

I cook a similar version. I never thought of using a creamy sauce. Will try that next time. My family like curry flavour so I add a tablespoon of powder at the beginning, and a cup of frozen peas & corn with the pasta shells.
