    Super-easy to make, and the basic ingredients are fanastic to start with! I'd recommend adding some more veggies and/or seasoning if you want a bit more of a flavor. Overall, it was great.  -  21 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used frozen peas and added garlic, fresh ground pepper and a little fresh grated parmesan and this was a keeper.  -  14 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  31 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
