This was an amazing simple recipe that required only a few ingredients. I used frozen broccoli instead of fresh, but it turned out great. I also added a bit more garlic, some lemon pepper season, italian seasoning, and freshly grated parmesean. Instead of putting it all in a bowl, I found it better to saute the oil, garlic, and pasta together for a few minutes. YUM!!! Read More

This isn't bad but it needs more flavor. Read More

I made this dish tonite for my family.My kids rated it an 8 on a scale 1-10.Of course I had to throw in my own twist.I added minced onions w/ the garlic. I used 2TBs butter along w/ the oil and added a splash of milk to make it creamy.Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and WALA youve got a meal as good as Olive Garden. Read More

I cooked the garlic/ olive oil mixture first then set it aside so that the flavors can blend. Read More

The best recipe ever! The whole family loved it. Although we did add some grilled chicken so for us it's called the 'One Dish Non-Vegetarian Vegetarian Dinner'. Read More

Ridiculously easy for a credible dinner. I added lemon pepper some Mrs. Dash (garlic & herb) and parmesean cheese -- otherwise it was too bland. Also reduced the amount of olive oil since it tends to always be too much no matter which recipe I use. Read More

As I'm new to vegetarian cooking I'm finding that I need more spice. I used grapeseed oil instead of olive oil--it's lighter and actually just as good or better for you. I added basil oregano greek seasoning red pepper flakes onion extra garlic and fresh bruschetta. As someone else suggested I added the oil and garlic mixture right to the pasta after it was done cooking. I'd make this again adding more spice. Read More
