Reviews for Broccoli Veggie Pasta Primavera
"I made this for my family and we loved it just the way it was. It had a good flavor. My husband especially liked it and he is a bit hard to please when it comes to veggies! The kids loved it too!"
"We found this to be a great side dish to the brown sugar ginger salmon dish we also found on TOH. The changes we made were starting with saut?ing the broccoli in Kerry Gold butter and using chicken broth instead of wine, then substituted thin rice noodles versus wheat based noodles. Otherwise we found the dish very flavorful and will make it again."
"Agree with other review. A lot of trouble for no flavor."
"While this recipe provided a great mix of veggies, it didn't have much of a sauce (making for a dry eat with the linguine) and the flavor was lacking. Next time, I will make my own sauce to accompany it and add additional spices to kick up the flavor."
