I gave this 5 stars because it gets your veggies in and still tastes great! Otherwise it's pretty standard, but I'll definitely make it again.

This was really yummy and light, a perfect springtime dish! I love that it's flexible on the veggies--I used up some produce leftover from this week. I also diced a chicken breast and added, to up the protein. My husband and I had a big bowl apiece, and there was still plenty leftover for lunch tomorrow.

Delicious... just needed a little bit more flavor, maybe double the dill and garlic. I substituted veggie broth for chicken, and whipping cream for heavy cream, and added fresh pepper. Used leftover veggies from a platter (asparagus, broccoli, peppers, zucchini, carrots) and sauteed them in a little olive oil and a half the wine instead of boiling them with the pasta- giving the veggies a nice texture, removed from sauce pan and put into serving bowl, and then prepared the sauce, then mixed everything together.

Big hit in our family (including 3 year old and 1 year old) and a great way to get in lots of veggies. My changes: sub fat free half & half for the cream; sub chicken broth for white wine; any type of noodle can be used well. We have used penne and spaghetti. Overall great basic recipe and fixture in our menu rotation. One tip, don't overcook the veggies.

This was excellent. I didn't add the heavy cream but it still tasted good. You can probably add seafood or diced chicken to this as well and it would be good.

Yum!!! Didn't add cream at all. Light & so very refreshing. My daughter just gobbled it up! Thanks

This is really very good! It came together a lot faster than I was expecting too. I only gave it 4 Stars because I would prefer fresh herbs & garlic next time.
