Disappointing. Too much pasta for the veggies; not worth the time and trouble. Tasty enough to eat but it would be easier to just use those veggies with some marinara for a nice sauce to top the pasta.
I was disappointed. I made it with a friend and once he spooned it on his plate his first words were: Where did the veggies go? Which mirrored my thoughts. Once I added the pasta I immediately checked the recipe to make sure I had the amount right because it seemed like too much; all the veggies disappeared. It was tasty enough to eat but it would be MUCH easier and quicker to just make a nice sauce for the pasta. Not worth the trouble; save your time.
Pretty good needs a few changes I thought this was a delicious recipe with great veggies. Not sure why there was a need for celery though. Needed lots more salt then I added I found. Also I would make sure the past is very aldente before adding to the veggies. Also cover the dish for most of the cook time maybe uncover the last 10-15min or it will burn the pasta on the top. Needs some other spice added maybe a pinch of red pepper flake...not sure I will experiment with that a bit. Pros: Love the veggies used Cons: Little bland and need to be covered most of cooking time
Family Favorite for Many Years I started making this in 1997 and lost the recipe when we moved. I searched for it on and off for years and here it is again! I usually add extra cheese but this is a light dish and the wine adds the unique difference. One for my daughters names this as her all-time favorite! ( We also love Baked Sicilian Spaghetti Cake which appeared in the same issue where capers and black olives make the difference! )Thank you for two of our 'family classics'! Pros: Light wonderfully subtile and sophisticated flavor! Cons: Takes a while to make. Don't over-bake!
Took a lot of time but it was pretty good! I used spicy bread crumbs and left out the celery for this recipe. I also didn't add any extra salt or pepper. It was great! I agree that a little less pasta could be used. I'll have to keep that in mind the next time. If you can find spicy bread crumbs use them. I think that's really what made the difference. I got zesty breadcrumbs and was surprised to see that they were made with red pepper. It was delicious though! Pros: lots of veggies Cons: time consuming
Disappointing This looked like a good recipe. There are several steps and the finished dish was really dry though it tasted good. I don't think I'd go to the trouble of making it again. I think the recipe instruction to cook the veggies till thickened evaporated too much moisture. Pros: Tasted good! Cons: Dry kind of a lot of work
I made this exactly as written and it was pretty good. My egg ended up cooking on top a bit odd and the top was dry but the bottom was very moist. Half of my family liked it and I will make again--just half the recipe though.
