This was pretty meh. Even though I roasted the cauliflower and squash first (per other reviewers), and used less broth than called for, it was still a soupy, mushy, bland mess. Both the kids picked at it, but we all voted that while edible, we wouldn't make this/want to eat it again. Because I hate to waste food, I had the leftovers for lunch, and though I added more cheese and salt, it was still a disappointment.
Good but missing something. I've been trying to find healthy recipes to incorporate into my diet. I'm a pasta lover but this dish is missing something. I took the advice of others and baked the cauliflower and squash(cut up) in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper for 15 minutes @ 390 degrees first. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I feel like it should have a creamy sauce with sliced kielbasa sausage. Perhaps it should be more of a side than a main dish. Pros: Filling, Wholesome, Healthy Cons: Bland
Nice meat free pasta dish w/ butternut squash We rated this an A-. There was a little too much pasta for the amount of cauliflower and squash. I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews, so I roasted the squash and cauliflower 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. I got the pasta pot out and cooked up the garlic & spices, added the broth, brought it to a boil, and added the penne. Cooked according to pasta instructions then added the roasted vegetables. I'll try it the original way next time to see what a difference it makes. Pros: easy to make Cons: too much pasta
Wonderful fall dish I thought this recipe made for a delicious week night meal. My only difficulty was with the pasta. It was hard to keep the pasta under the liquid so that it would cook. I ended up stirring quite a lot which in the end broke pene. So maybe next time I will make the pasta in a separate pot and add it to the sauce... The squash and cauliflower were an excellent combination. I toasted the squash seeds and sprinkled them on top. Yum!!! Pros: healthy, easy
Delicious! I ladled this over baby spinach to add some greens. Absolutely yummy! Pros: Easy, fairly quick, inexpensive.
