MY REVIEW

"I would say this was fine, but just didn't "wow" me. My husband begrudgingly ate it, but said he wouldn't want to have it again. Overall it was easy to make and I like that it is healthy and low in sodium. I'm not sure if I'll make it again since Mr. Picky will be complaining about it. For non-vegetarians, I think some crumbled bacon would be a nice addition."

"This recipe is simple to make and very delicious. I will definitely make it again. I did add a dollop of "verde pasta sauce" to the finished dish for a little more flavor."

"I was going to give this 4 stars, but then I just noticed I had completely left out the parmesan cheese, so I will throw in the extra star on the chance the addition of the parm cheese would have put it over the top . :) I made this with (formerly) dried tortellini and grilled corn cut off the cob. It was good. VERY light and non-filling. I felt like it could have been a bit more flavorful somehow, but maybe the parm cheese would have helped with that. Will most likely make again!"
