I thought this was great!! I added some pickled garlic cloves along with the juice just before serving, gave it excellent flavor.

I joined this site just to pass on the information that this dish is not good AT ALL! There is no taste and the proportions are all wrong. There is no way that anyone actually ever made this recipe. This must have been thrown together to fill the site for recipes or something because this is not a dish that you would ever make on purpose. Awful waste of time.

This was delicious. My husband, a picky eater, really enjoyed it. I added other vegetables I had on hand to add variety.

How to do determine that 714 mg of sodium in one portion is health?50% of americans should have no more than 1500 mg of sodium per day. I think you need to rework your recipies!

My family said do not make this again. The cornstarch broth misture was very tasteless. It definitely did not provide enought moisture to be served on the pasta.The vegetables were tasty and I definitely would saute vegetables in the basil oil combination again.
