I added roasted pepper and asiago chicken sausage. I also used some of the pasta water and parm cheese to make more of a sauce. It was delicious.

Huge hit with all four kids which is a major bonus. I added some pasta water and a teaspoon of concentrated veg. stock.

It is a nice light dinner. I think it would be great as a lunch. My kids 4 1/2 and 6 years old like it. I will have to chop up the red pepper into smaller pieces. I like it a lot. :-)

Great dish...I added some spicy Italian sausage and a Lil Italian dressing.

Altered a little, used canned spinach instead of fresh and added lemon pepper chicken. Also added a bit of fire roasted tomatoes

Simple and easy to throw together on a week night. My extremely lucky 3 year old tried it and liked it.

My children (18, 13, 10, 9, and 2) loved this meal. Really great flavor.

This was great! I altered a little, I don't measure a lot when cooking but I added more pasta, more basil, some cayenne and garlic powder (we like garlic). I also threw in turkey sausage and the Parmesan gave it an extra flavor.

Made this recipe tonight as written. It was a little bland so my husband suggested to add hot chili sesame oil. We each added a shot of the oil to our own dish and it melded so nicely and gave it the wow that it needed.

Very simple weeknight meal. I doubled the recipe. It wouldn't really have been enough for 4 as written. I added 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the pasta water at the end of cooking the vegetables - made the whole thing really creamy. I also added way more fresh basil than called for - about 1/3 cup when I tossed the pasta - don't cook with the onion and garlic if using fresh. I also added about 1/8 cup of olive oil when tossing and considerably more parmesan lots of salt and fresh ground pepper. I guess more is better!

This.came out good. Definitely needed more oil and some broth otherwise it would be too dry. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe.

quick and easy!

I added extra garlic and some heavy cream to give it some sauce. I also added some ground turkey to make it a complete meal for my family. Despite the added ingredients, I still found it to be a little bland... I think next time I'll add some more spices, but overall I think it was a filling and enjoyable meal
