Reviews for Mushroom Primavera Pasta Sauce
"This dish is so full of flavor! A family favorite after the fist time I made it!"
"I had most of the veggies in our garden. Great way to use those extra tomatoes and zucchini. I used garlic powder instead of a whole bulb but it wasn't enough flavor so I added oregano and basil. Turned out great."
"I would love to make this I was wondering if the whole bulb of garlic was used?"
"Even my veggie hating husband loves it :D Served over Garden Delight pasta for an extra flavor :)"
