"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."

"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."
