This was good, not amazing, but good. I'm not sure if I would remake this specific recipe or go out of my way to recommend it because I've made many variations of this just on my own by throwing the veggies I have on hand together in a skillet with olive oil and seasonings..It just isn't very original, but tasted ok.

Wonderful way to get a lot of veggies in! So tasty. Will be making much more in the future...would be yummy to grill the veggies in the summer.

Good stuff. Can use any veggies you have on hand, really, and sprinkle on Italian seasoning to taste.

This recipe was pretty good! Good way to use some summer garden veggies. I added fresh basil from the garden at the end.

Wonderful side dish or a lite main dish. Angel hair pasta was great with it as well.

This is absolutely delicious! It can be tailored to the veggies that the family likes (we've used brussel sprouts and carrots too.) Can also add grilled chicken and make it a meal instead of side dish. Definitely a keeper!

I've made this delicious dish many times. It gets rave reviews every time. I often substitute the veggies I have available and it's just as good, in my opinion.

I have made this several times since I found the recipe last year. Our family (kids and adults) loves it! The veggies are delicious, and with the orzo and feta, it's a great combination.
