My family enjoyed this dish -- hot, and then cold the following day -- I think it would be great with grilled chicken.

I always use dried beans for this soaked over night and boiled until done! Inexpensive and healthy meal!! Thanks!

VERY good! Since I am vegetarian, I used a vegetable bouillon, and it turned out to be very salty. So for the veg ppl: use a low sodium one! This aside, I think 2 small tomatoes are more than enough. It was delicious anyway, and I'll certainly make it again!

Good food! My boyfriend and I agreed that the tomatos were kind of yuck, though. Perhaps something like mushrooms would be good. We also threw in some grilled chicken. The pasta cooked in broth definately makes this dish!

I used vegetable bouillion to make it vegetarian and also swapped mushrooms for the tomatoes. Love the fact it uses only one pot. All in all a good meal. Bound to be on the menu again. Thanks.

It's very easy and delicious. I didn't want to put in the white beans so I added frozen green peas instead and it was great. Thanks.

We just finished this and we were blown away by how flavorful this dish was and how simple and economical. It also felt good to go 'meatless' for dinner yet still felt full when we finished. Only change I made was using 3 bouillon cubes and 3 roma tomatoes. Excellent dish, will make often. Thanks!

This was hands down 5 stars at my home! What I did, since people said it lacked flavor, I used 3 chicken boullions, added a little Italian seasoning and onion powder. I omitted the tomatoes since we are not fans of them and added grilled chicken. PERFECT! Will will be making this again and again!! WooHoo!!
