I made this but I used 3 of the butters, added mushrooms, can of drained sweet corn, red, yellow an green peppers, whole red onion an can of peas. I have (Veggie eaters) and the noodles I used were Radiatore they look like little baby lasagna also I did 1/2 cup of Ragu traditional sauce with a little sugar. I know, my family is picky. I made early, then warmed it up for dinner. They were mad the next day when for dinner because they ate it all for lunch, kids loved it!

Absolutely love it. I'm no cook by any means. Simple and easy to follow! When your wife gives the seal of approval, you know did good. Brownie points for the hubby. Thank you sauté express!
