    Very tasty

    Emma Horne from Scotland

    It was a lovely dish and easy to prepare, the only thing is where I come from, chicken broth is a soup and also not vegetarian so We left that out when making the dish for our vegetarian friend. Still tasty but made 4 portions rather than the stated 6.

    Disappointed

    VALENA Thompson from Arizona

    Extremely bland. For leftovers added sauteed mushrooms, pepperoni, and topped with a small amount of cheddar cheese...then it was WONDERFUL!

    Joan Randall from CAPE CORAL, FL

    I loved the versatility of this recipe! All versions of this recipe have worked no matter what combinations of vegetables I've used. In the interest of healthy eating, I used whole grain pasta. This recipe is on tap for the next pot luck ... a winner!

    This is a very good dish, easy to do. I like the idea of the chicken, but I have made it with shrimp and it's just yummy. You can really play around with this dish. You can change it around with what you have on hand.

    YOWZA! Great pasta recipe.

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    Not only was this VERY tasty, it was beautiful to look at. I got to use my pasta maker (which I rarely do) and made nice fresh fettuccine. The vegetables looked so pretty - what a great presentation. AND the big bonus was that the taste lived up to the appearance! We enjoyed this pasta dish. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

    Italian Veg. creamy Fettuccine

    Elaine Allen from ASHLAND, KY

    This recipe is delicious! Its a meal in its self. I have now made it several times. I use fat free carnation evaported milk, low fat chesse, and fat free chicken broth, and lean turkey breast, so its makes it very healthy. I highly recommend it to anyone to likes veggies and pasta, yet its does not taste low fat.

    Perfect Creamy Fettuccini

    Last night, I tried making pasta for the first time with my new pasta roller. with my cut fettuccini, I had no idea what to make. I saw this recipe and decided it would be perfect- and it was! I loved the creaminess and all the veggies. A PERFECT 10! I'll be using this recipe a lot.

    I really like alfredo sauce with pasta, but do not eat it, because of the calories. Now I can make this and with all of the veggies and fat free milk, I do not feel guilty eating it. It is really good.

    This fettuccine was delicious and had much less fat than my regular recipe. The only change I'd make would be to add the broccolli later because we like it a bit crunchy.

    This has become a staple in our home especially during lent. We use whatever vegetables we have available such as asparagus, cauliflower and carrots. That is what's great about this recipe you can tailor the vegetables to what your family likes to eat.

    WOW! This was easier than I thought it would be (since it was in the advanced section), the kids (9& 14) even helped. We added some different vegies & mixed in some garbonzo beans, then tossed toasted almonds on top for some added protien. We will make this again!

    SANDRA MOGLE from ,

    I served this recipe at a small dinner party I had for friends. Many of my friends are vegetarians, and those that aren't, are always watching the foods they eat. This recipe is perfect for those kind of quests. It is simple to make, it is delicious, and it is very healthy. It is wonderful served with garlic bread, and a pineapple salad. A pine apple is a slice of pineapple served on a leaf of lettuce, with a spoonful of mayo in the center of the pineapple, and a cherry on top of the mayo. Wonderful!
