Review This Recipe
very tasty and simple
This dish offers a lot of flavor with very little effort. I highly recommend the Buitoni Pesto--it is one of the best I've ever tried.
For some reason, serving fresh chiled pineapple chunks as side dish really brought out the flavor--so much that everyone in the family commented on how well the two go together. I'll definitely make it again.
Even my son and husband who don't like zucchini thought it was good. It was quick, easy, and full of flavor.
I enjoyed making this as much as my family enjoyed eating it. It was quick, simple, flavorful, and pleasing. I will be making this again!
Simple and Full Flavored
This recipe was full of flavor while being light at the same time. It made and elegant presentation and yet was simple enough that my 9 year old daughter was able to prepare it perfectly and without direct supervision.
This recipe is so delicious. Very simple to do. I added some marinated chicken strips that I cooked before, just to add a little extra. Mmmmm!
Terrific and easy
It was fast, convenient and delicious. My six and two year olds who usually refuse to eat linguine or vegetables gobbled it up.
This meal went over big last night even with my three toddlers. I am going to share this one! Thanks for the delicious dish.
