"This recipe was very bland and needs some kind of sauce for the pasta. No one liked it until I threw together a little no fat sour cream, a little 2% milk and Parmesan and tossed it all together. pasta with nothing coating it is awful."

"I really liked this dish. I did add some fresh spinach to the saute of onion & garlic. Next time I make this I may try adding a little lemon juice & zest. An easy & fast dish to make."

"This dish is on the table faster than fast food and it's so much better for you. I make this often and have made only a few changes. I use a whole grain pasta, I add a chopped red pepper, as other reviewers stated... I use cooked shrimp to get this dish on the plate even quicker. As the final touch I add is a sprinkling of crushed red pepper. Delish!"
