  • I REALLY liked this recipe, even though I didn't have dijon mustard or cornstarch (I could have sworn we had both those things. Where did they go?) and also I don't like pepper so I left it out. It was still so delicious! I'll definitely be making this one again. Thanks! - 2/10/11

  • Very good recipe. I made it with rotini instead of penne and my kids really liked it... next time I think I *might* try it with garden rotini. - 6/27/09
