    Used different ingredients. I adjusted this to our liking,but,it was so good,we may make it two weeks in a row! While the pasta was cooking (I used Rotini)in a fry pan I heated 2 1/2 cloves minced garlic (& I added a bit of chopped garlic for fun) and about 1/2 cup chopped red onion in a little olive oil. I added sugar snap pea pods and sun dried tomatoes. I grilled the asparagus on our Hamilton Beach griller for a few minutes (after mixing with a little olive oil and lemon juice). Then I added to fry pan for a few minutes. I then added all ingredients together in a large bowl and tossed with fresh grated parm chz (a drizzle more oil) and a little salt & pepper. Awesome!  -  29 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. I made this recipe the other night and found it very good. I added peas instead of snow pea pods. I also added chicken with a little bit of hot pepper flakes. You can add or do just about anything to this recipe to make your own and be very tasty. A very good basic recipe.  -  29 Sep 2008
