Hot pasta with fresh veggies; the only thing my son would eat when watching his weight during wrestling season. For a "full" meal, add thinly sliced leftover steak or chicken with the tomatoes.

This is a yummy dish that uses some of the harvest from your summer vegi garden. I added fresh basil and oregano red and yellow peppers along with the zucchini. Also crumbled and cooked italian sausage added at the end really pulls it all together. Read More

This recipe is tasty but it needs lots of help. It turns out very bland otherwise. Cook the veggies a bit longer to soften the red/green peppers. While cooking the veggies add more salt more cayenne and some basil and oregano. Add a protein food to it. I added pieces of tuna from the can. When serving grate fresh Parmesan cheese on top. Then (and only then) it's ready to eat! Read More

Yummy Yummy Yummy!! I make this all the time! I add a bit more cayanne pepper because we like it a little spicer and it's great. The things you can add to it are countless...try shrimp! Read More

Terrific flavor! We used egg noodles instead of fettuccini and a can of petite diced tomatoes in place of the fresh tomato. This recipe can be easily altered with I suspect great results. Next time we'll try adding some kalamatas and maybe some different veggies! Read More

I didn't have the peppers for this recipe however I made a homemade alfredo sauce with cream cheese heavy cream milk and parmesan cheese stirred it into the veggies and it was delicious. I bet grilled chicken would really give it a "full" meal feeling. Delicious... I couldn't wait to eat it! Read More
