    This dish was surprisingly good! I grew up in an Italian household, so holding back on things like garlic & onion made me wonder! It's good just as it's written! You have to have a little of everything to get the full flavor of this dish! - 7/9/09

  • I really enjoyed this. I doubled the recipe and ate it as pasta salad the next day, then I added some vegetable broth and Mango Chipoltle spice and had a spicy soup the third day, very nice. I will definitely make this again and again. - 3/20/14

  • I didn't have high hopes at first but it's really good, not very heavy, but still fills you. I loved it! Probably would be a five star with some meat and parmesan cheese added. - 8/25/11

  • Delicious! I changed some of the vegetables to reflect what I had at the time, and it's very versatile that way. I also changed the spices, as I'm not a fan of dill, and included a large tablespoon of sundried tomato pesto, and boiled the pasta with water and vegetable broth for more flavour. - 4/17/11

  • I loved this dish! It was easy and yummy. I added a tablespoon of parm to the top as it was an extra in my dinner and it tasted even better, but was great on it's own. :) Kids loved it too! - 7/8/10

  • The basic recipe is good, but the dill is not. I kept getting this creepy fish vibe. It'll make it hard to eat the leftovers, but I will make the recipe again with some seasoning other than dill. - 5/12/10

  • This was delicious and easy! Cooked enough pasta for spaghetti sauce and I had mine with the vegetables. Family tried mine and enjoyed it too! - 2/22/10

  • Very good. I used sea salt instead of regular salt for a bit of extra flavour. - 1/4/10

  • I ended up substituting a serving of mixed veggies instead of the fresh, and adding some Light Ranch to it, was rather bland otherwise. Trying to think of some way to liven this up. - 10/9/09
