This was a delicious and healthy meal. I did not add the extra pasta water but did add freshly grated parmesan cheese.

This was totally bland for us, and we are not the types to overly salt/spice. It wasn't the worst thing I've tried, but my husband & I basically rock-paper-scissors-ed it to see who would eat it...

Yummy however I wanted more of a soup and the recipe as written had too much pasta and not enough liquid. I added 2 cups of pasta water and a container of vegetable broth.

really good! i also added some turkey bacon (with the saute in the beginning) and it was awesome to have for lunch for several days.
