I cooked some bow tie pasta (farfalle) and tossed with some sauteed vegetables. Simple and delicious. Makes for a great side dish with chicken or meat loaf.

As is this recipe is a little bland. I added some fresh garlic and a can of diced tomatoes. I think that some fresh grated parmesan would be a great addition to this dish as well I didn't add any because I wanted dairy free. Read More

This was actually quite tasty and easy to make. However I think that next time I make it (and there probably will be a next time) I will add either diced tomatoes or red bell peppers for the color. I did peel the zucchini maybe that was why it was so bland looking. Over all a good recipe. Thanks for posting. Read More

This is another versatile recipe; throw in whatever you like can't go wrong. I enjoy it best during the summer months with a variety of slightly warmed cherry tomatoes picked fresh from the garden. Great recipe thanks. Read More

This was very good however I will add more cheese next time. I actually am thinking of adding a shredded parmesan or romano to compliment this dish. Read More

Using a combination of the previous two reviewers I added some minced garlic and 1/2 green bell pepper (sliced). After sauting the veggies I added a splash of chicken broth and then a splash of white wine. Once heated I poured all over the pasta. An okay economical meal. If I had made this with a main dish I might have recieved it a little better but since I made this as a quick lunch for my daughter and I - I found it lacking in flavor and a little "dry." Read More
