  • Aroma -- Does it smell good? Does the aroma make you want to dig in?
  • Consistency -- How is the meat-to-sauce ratio? It shouldn't be runny, mushy or overly thick.
  • Taste -- How is the flavor? Do the ingredients blend well, or is one too overpowering? Does the first bite make you want another one?
