I hate to be the initial reviewer and kick things off w/a 3 star review but for us it was "ok" just as 3 stars indicates. It was certainly quick to prepare and used pantry staples but it just had a bit of an off taste to me kind of like Pasta-Roni. So if you're a fan of products like Pasta-Roni you'll love this (and that's not a slam at all just something to give you an idea of what to expect). Otherwise this probably isn't for you. THANKS for the recipe Amy R! Read More

I have been making my own version of this recipe for years. The only thing missing is salt and pepper to taste. I love this recipe because it is so versatile and can be made as either a side dish of a pasta or as a main quick meal. I also add milk and parmesean cheese sometimes for a bit of a difference.

Recipes are references for me...this one was no different. I first sauté up garlic onion and pine nuts in a Dutch oven with a cup of white wine. Added the one pound of broken pasta started adding veggie stock about a cup at a time sprinkled crushed red pepper black pepper and Italian spices as I cooked down the stock. It took about 5 cups of stock to cook the pasta. The last few mins I threw in chopped pea pods and chopped up fresh parsley. Served on the with grilled shrimp(& grilled tofu for my vegan). Huge hit with all and was asked when I d like it again! Read More

It was actually very good. I had all ingredients on hand so an easy sauce to make. I had seen another review stating "you forgot to put salt & pepper in it". Don't add more salt. It's salty enough. I served this with baked garlic parmesan chicken on top. The combo was good. Read More
