Tried just the pasta and sauce portion of this recipe but unfortunately we found it too overpowering in all areas (basil lemon and oil). Read More

Delicious outcome; easy prep and process. Only substitution I made was using asparagus instead of sugar snap peas. Husband loved it. It is now one of my "go to" recipes. Read More

This was delicious! I made it exactly like the recipe called for but added fresh tomatoes and mushrooms with the snap peas. I did think that I should have doubled the sauce with adding extra veggies. At the end there wasn't much sauce and it was a bit to dry for my taste but I will definitely add this to my favorites. My husband l loved it!! Read More

I don’t know if we just eat more pasta than the average person, but I don’t believe this is 6 servings. It’s more like 4. But it’s really good, and super easy! I added mushrooms and used prepared pesto (about 4 tablespoons) but otherwise followed the recipe. Read More
