I'm not a very good cook, and living with an Italian it's very hard to cook a pasta dish to his standard. However this recipe was easy to follow and to food was delicious! Thank you. - 26 Jan 2014


This is rubbish and tastes like liquid. Horrible - 01 Apr 2014


My picky 5yr Old and thankfully not picky husband loved this. I love recipes that you can use to 'clean out the fridge' or freezer of vegetables I cooked up mushrooms, onions, courgette, carrots then mixed in with pasta loads of sweet paprika, parsley, a bit of chopped up bacon and pepper to taste. It was a hit. Thanks for this recipe I think it is a terrific way to get veggies into a meal! - 03 Oct 2015
