MY REVIEW

"This is delicious - excellent flavor!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2011

"I absolutely loved this dish the first time I made it (only a week ago) and I am still eating leftovers. I can't wait to use fresh veggies from the garden next spring! Admittedly, my husband wasn't thrilled but he is closed-minded in the food department and refuses to eat anything in the squash family, tomatoes and mushrooms."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2011

"This was one of the best dishes I have ever tried. We are a family that loves pasta and have tried many pasta dishes. I cannot say enough about this one. We did add extra cheese to it. And to my surprise, my son loved it and he hates vegetables. I have passed it on to all of my family members who also love it."

"I also added italian sausage... so not so we now call it Garden Penne. so delish"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 30, 2011

"This was delicious! I did not use the butter, but I did add Italian chicken sausage. I could only find shredded provolone that came mixed with shredded mozzarella, so I just used a 1/2 cup of that. My husband loved this too. I will definitely make this again."
