Pasta dishes are my main comfort food, so I was motivated to create a low calorie dish -- this one does it for me! Very quick & easy to put together and quite delish.

  • I didn't give it five stars only because it was too salty for my taste. Next time I will definitely leave out the salt. But a thumbs up from my family! - 10/17/11

  • Great recipe. I couldn't find Italian chicken sausage so I used another kind of chicken sausage and replace the the dried chopped onion by some grey challots. My husband loved it! - 6/25/11
