This is a wonderful side dish, but on many occasions we make this our whole meal, along with a salad and bread!

Great dish! I made it lowfat by omitting the butter and using less oil. I would also recommend either doubling the veggies or cutting the pasta amount in half. The second time I made this I added 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion to the peppers and it made a difference in the flavor! Timesaver tip: add the broccoli to the boiling pasta for 3-4 minutes then scoop out and add to the red peppers. Thanks for the recipe!

I'm sorry but this was BORING! Others have stated to increase the oil/butter to equally spread over the lb of noodles which is what I did but I would think that 1/2 cup of chicken broth or white wine would have been a much better option. It wasn't that it tasted bad but basically this meal was just butter oil noodles and broccoli. I think it put my tatse buds to sleep. Thanks anyways.

Read through a lot of the reviews and suggestions and also made a few modifications and it was excellent: No butter only olive oil for sauteeing. One red bell pepper one green bell pepper three diced fresh tomatoes ten oil cured black olives (when we couldn't find any anchovies) and three heaping soup spoons of diced fresh garlic from the Sams Club jumbo container. Also a teaspoon and a half of salt Strongly considered adding some red pepper flakes or salsa but were afraid to push the envelope too much... Instead of linguini we used penne pasta and it turned out as good as any Whole Foods pasta salad delicious warm and room temperature.

Very tasty! I found that a whole pound of Linguini was too much for the sauce/vegetables. I recommend only cooking half the box (1/2 pound) or else doubling the rest. I used half and it came out very nice.

I've made this dish about 5 times already and just love it! I've discovered though that i like to add more veggies than called for and extra parmesan cheese.

Simple uncomplicated but delicious. I skipped the garlic salt (seemed redundant considering you've already including fresh garlic) and as for the cooking method the step of steaming the broccoli is not necessary - I simply sauteed it along with the red peppers.

I really enjoyed this dish. It makes for a very nice light supper with a green salad. It is a little dry but I just added an extra tablespoon of olive oil. The flavors of the vegetables really come through.
