"Delicious...I omitted the mushrooms and added cauliflower and yellow squash to the vegetables to be roasted...and added some garlic powder. Red pepper flakes could add some zing but i didn't add it this time. This can be modified to add any type of vegetable. I halved the recipe for me and my husband and we could have eaten the whole thing."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Delicious. Th next time I try this I will double the veggies as they reduce quite a bit when cooked. I did NOT use the butter, as I didn't think it needed it."
