"This spaghetti dish is very easy to prepare and you can also substitute other types of pasta for a change. I have also used half broccoli and half spinach for a nice change. Crusty French bread and a garden salad make this a delicious meal."

My family modifies the recipe by preparing the spaghetti, the broccoli, and saute'ing the mushrooms in the butter with the salt and pepper. This way we can heat and combine at our convience and the dish is even easier to prepare for those extra hectic days.
This needs tweaking! Use FRESH shrooms, (canned are so disgusting) fresh basil & garlic, and FRESH broccoli!!!! Too much black pepper, add 1/2-1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes instead. I like more lemon, too and increased the amount of juice to my liking and microplaned a bit of zest in there, as well. If you use salted butter, you may not need an entire TB of salt. A splash of half & half was a great addition, too. Next time will add chicken or shrimp for the meat lovers in my family. I give it 1 star as written, but a 4 with the tweaks. :-)
This is a good recipe for a fast meal. I used fresh vegetables in this recipe: (broccoli, mushrooms & garlic). I added 1 chopped onion and 7 chopped roma tomatoes. I sauteed the onion, garlic and mushrooms for about 5 - 7 minutes. I then added the broccoli and sauteed for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Finally, I added the sliced tomatoes and half a cup of water and sprinkled on some Italian seasoning. I brought the mixture to a boil, reduced the heat, covered the dish and simmered everything for about 10 minutes. I will definitely make this again.
This ended up being a pretty good meal. I had started by following the recipe perfectly, but then didn't like the taste results. Very bland. There just didn't seem to be enough seasoning so I needed to add quite a bit more. I also used half spinach and half broccoli, with the spinach adding a bit more taste. I did as others mentioned and put in the parmesean cheese last, which created a creamy mixture. All my vegetables were fresh except for the broccoli. I'd suggest this recipe to anyone who doesn't mind swaying from the recipe in order to make a really tasty dish. My boyfriend loved it, especially with the extra garlic powder I added.
This is a great combination of flavors. I did have to make some adjustments due to using fresh ingredients. I chopped fresh broccoli, mushrooms, and garlic and sauteed those in a combination of butter and olive oil. I added the cheese and other ingredients, but this still needed liquid to pull it together. I threw in some chicken broth, but white wine or vegetable broth would work (to keep it vegetarian - I was serving chicken with it.)
Faboulous- With these adaptions: Use fresh garlic and fresh basil instead of dried, and add 5 fresh chopped tomatoes. In terms of cooking, mix in the parmesan when serving rather than cooking it with the vegetables. Fantastic, thanks for my yummy lunch x
I rated this 5 and my husband rated it 3 - so I decided to compromise on 4. I thought it was delicious, easy to prepare (even with fresh vegetables - we just simmered it a little longer) and quick. I used fresh broccoli, mushrooms and two tomatoes, chopped up. I waited and added the cheese right at the end. He thought it was just okay - nothing really special. I disagree. :) Great recipe - thanks!
Excellent. I replaced spaghetti with fettucini. I did use fresh broccoli and mushrooms, and sauted with some homemade vegetable stock I happened to have on hand. I made as a side dish serving with Easy Mozzarella Chicken by SARAHBEA. I threw both together when we had unexpected company.. so simple to throw together and impressive on the table!
