"This dish was AMAZING! I added fresh spinach to the broccoli and mixed it into the pasta. I doubled the recipe (except for the oil) and it was such a hit. I have 3 kids (4 if you count my husband) 8,5 & 3 and they went for seconds!"

"A tasty side dish. I cut down the olive oil to one fourth a cup, and think I'll use less the next time I make it. Very good recipe!"

"Made this twice so far, LOVE it! The Parmesan cheese really makes it! I double the garlic and use whole grain pasta to make it healthier."
