Recipe Comments & Reviews

We did cherry tomatoes instead of Roma and added sliced black olives. It was wonderful and my kids couldn't get enough!! So much better than their normal favorite of just pasta with butter.
My wife really liked this recipe, but I felt it was a little too
This was very appealing in looks, tasted wonderful and light, and was easy to make. Loved it and will definitely make again.
This dish was excellent. I added fresh corn taken off the comb; boiled the cobs in the water for the pasta. add some of this water to the mixture.
