MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2011

"Very tasty, though I only used the chicken broth instead of the wine. I also doubled the amount of pasta, which stretched it nicely, but it would have been better with only 4 ounces. I thought 2 onions was way too much, so I only used one, and the kids picked them out of theirs. Be sure to slice the onions very thin, or they won't cook all the way through."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2010

"Very tasty - the sweet white wine adds a unique flavor. I think I would add mushrooms and snow peas next time for some added veggies."
