Reviews for Roasted Vegetable Penne Bake
Sort By :
"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."
"This is delicious - excellent flavor!"
"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."
"I also added italian sausage... so not so we now call it Garden Penne. so delish"
