Very light and flavorful. I did use olive oil instead of butter. I also added some fresh basil at the end. My husband loved it.
this dish is so yummy. my kids loved it. I too tweaked the recipe. I added garlic and tossed the grape tomatoes in balsalmic vinegar. it was extremely tasty!
This is a very good recipe, but I made some changes to suit my tastes. First , I added 2 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. This recipe needs garlic, so I added 3 minced cloves in with the squash. I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry and added fresh minced basil in at the end. I used the Parmesan but omitted the feta , because we don't care for it. I also marinated the grape tomatoes in some balsalmic vinegar before tossing them in with the pasta-great pasta dinner!
