Reviews for Vegetable Medley Pasta Side Dish
"This was tasty as is, but I would sauté fresh mushroom with some garlic to add a little more kick. The canned button mushroom were a little too rubbery and bland for my taste."
"i change it a little i used fresh green beens cooked the same way did not add tomatos but did use parmesian cheese on top servered with tuscan chicken i cooked on grill and cranberrys on the side"
"Made this without the pasta, using cauliflower, green beans and red bell pepper, with basil from our garden, dried. Yum!"
"My husband loved this! I thought it needed a bit more seasoning, not sure what though."

"Delicious and easy enough that my 9-year old cooked most of this recipe with only a little assistance from me!"
"Nice blend of flavors. We used a large tomato, which seemed about right. There was plenty of sauce to coat the veggies and pasta. Excellent recipe."
