As is, this is a 3 star recipe. A bit bland and not much to it. I added a couple large handfuls of parmesan, a couple dashes of pepper, and an extra splash of olive oil and that made it more of a 4 star recipe. Would be good with chopped chicken. I used frozen peas with some of the water used to boil. Hate that can liquid stuff. Also, I don't recommend using all the pasta because it dilutes the flavor a bit. Add the pasta slowly as you are tossing and taste it. I used about 3/4 of the amount in the recipe. Read More

I also used frozen peas and pasta water as the liquid and I thought this was pretty darn good considering how easy it was to make! I also added some black pepper and grated some cheddar cheese over it... I will definitely make this again! Great as a side dish with chicken too... Read More

This is so easy and so delicious! My kids love it and I can never get them to eat peas. The only change I made was to add 1 14oz. can of Italian style tomato sauce. I also put the noodles on our plates and then pour sauce over it. I don't always like to mix the sauce with the pasta because the pasta soaks up the sauce if it sits too long. Read More

Pretty darn good! I had to make a few substitutions based on what was on hand. White onion for the green and I added a ton of fresh garlic. Bag of Frozen peas and a cup of veggie broth for the canned peas. The fresh basil is a great flavor. Read More

Very good and very simple. Only difference was that I used a white onion instead of the green used frozen instead of canned peas and added some minced garlic. Wonderful with the fresh basil. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I'm sorry but this was just incredibly bland. This was even after adding roasted garlic to give it some flavor. Read More

Good simple dish. I used a 16 oz. package of frozen peas and added 3/4 cup of bouillon in place of the canned peas. We just served the peas over the pasta rather than mixing it all together. Lots of flavor to this easy dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Read More
