"Added a little Parmesan and yes! It was yummy!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2014

"The onion was way too over powering. Maybe half of an onion?? I'm going to add some beans or meat to the leftovers tonight (since I don't want to throw it all away) hoping that bulking it up with something will take away from the onion flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2014

"Wonderful! I made this for a family gathering and everyone loved it! I believe this would be good as a main meal ~ add some Italian sausage and tomatoes...double yum!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2013

"Good basic recipe. I added some chopped fresh tomatoes for a few minutes at the end and topped with Parmesan, as others suggested."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 18, 2012

"Tastes really good but I agree in that it needs a little something extra such as shredded Parmesan, grape tomatoes, and/or chicken. It was a great change from my normal pasta meals."
