This was so good...and versatile. Also good as leftovers! I substituted mushrooms for cauliflower - delicious! I didn't know what deglazing meant and googled it after it was too late. I just threw the wine in with the vegetables instead of taking the vegetables out like you are supposed to when deglazing. It was still good. Also, I remembered I was supposed to save a cup of the pasta water as I was watching it all disappear down the drain! I ended up not adding any liquid and it was just fine. Also, since the carrots were not in the instructions, I forgot to add those. You probably just add them in with the other veggies though, right?
I followed the recipe except I used only half the amount of pasta, but it was plenty in proportion to the amount of other ingredients. I added 2 cloves minced garlic. But it was very bland. Amount of salt & pepper is not given in the recipe. I added 1 tsp to boiling water before cooking the pasta, I added 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper to the finished dish. Needs more seasoning. Perhaps crushed red pepper flakes.
Super yummy and simple! Reheats really well. I left out the cauliflower and added in more sprouts and carrots I also left out the butter and used a bit more oil, and it's still quite flavorful. I've made this deglazing with wine, but I also made it one night with beer and it was delicious! Just a little different flavor. Last addition that I sometimes throw in if I've got it is a little Kielbasa sausage...I think it goes well with the other flavors rather than using chicken or beef. This is a keeper for sure.
Such a great way to use some of my favorite vegetables! I could not stop eating this!
I brown a couple of cloves of crushed garlic with the onion. As a final step I top with bread crumbs browned in olive oil. It adds a bit of extra crunch and an extra layer of depth.
I sauteed 1 lb ground turkey & garlic, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes and added it to this recipe. No elbow pasta, so I used Penne other than those changes I followed the the recipe as written. Great flavor and we loved the textures. I'm going to try it with rice g/f pasta this weekend
This recipe is Excellent!
I used half a box of whole what elbow mac, and it was plenty for my taste. Also, I added one more carrot. Delicious!
