"LOVED this. Made it for the first time tonight...no changes except I forgot the garlic at the store so used garlic powder instead. Doubled everything. I was surprised...it was GREAT! I threw in a splash of lemon in my bowl too. :) So good! I also used frozen broccoli. Biggest critic...my husband...who hates anything pasta LOVED it too!!!!"

"We really liked this recipe and that's saying a lot considering my husband doesn't normally like pasta dishes. I left the carrots out since my husband doesn't like them."
