About this recipe: A super-delicious vegetarian pasta that is made in 20 minutes. Penne is tossed in a creamy cheesy alfredo sauce and parsley. Enjoy with crusty bread rolls or a side salad.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
easy to make and any pasta fan would enjoy this recipe... - 28 Apr 2014
I have just made this for tea,very tasty but high fat content.would make it again but would make it more healthy. - 02 Oct 2014
My reason for not giving it a five is due to the fact that the recipe should tell the novice cook to let the sauce sit for a moment so that it will get a bit thicker. I put it in directly with the pasta(as listed in the directions), and for the first 5 mins had pasta soup. It eventually thickened up, and had great consistency. On the "taste" end of things, I thought the sauce was awesome. I'm being serious. Now, I'm a big fan of the Alfredo from Olive Garden, and anyone who eats there regularly will know what I'm talking about. I'll have to say, this version is second to Olive Garden's. I was more than pleasantly surprised. Anyone who loves some good ol' Alfredo, definately try this one out. Also, I added extra parmesan to the sauce. It was magnifico! - 18 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
