Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
This recipe is good only if you make major changes. I made it as it stands, except for the butter. Even though i LOVE butter, it just seemed to be way too much. And it would have been. As it was, after baking it was too greasy and the vegetables limp and tasteless. It would have been much better if I had simply served it after combining everything. At that point, the veggies still had some crunch and the parmesan hadn't separated making the pastagreasy.I cut the butter to 2T and that was plenty. Three-fourths of a cup of butter turns a relatively healthful meal into one swimming in fat. I will probably make a version of this in the future, but with more vegetables and some fresh tomatoes. I liked the sun-dried tomatoes, but good ones are expensive and why bother when you can get flavorful cherry or grape tomatoes. Fresh basil would be good as well.

Pepper Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Good, easy recipe. I have to laugh at Marshall Gatten who doesn't think it's worth "all the produce and effort"! He must usually eat TV dinners - that's the only thing easier I can think of, lol.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
This was tasty! I had to leave out the dill because my husband thinks he doesn't like it (what does he think dill pickles are made with?!) but it was still good.
