As the previous reviews stated, I also increased the sauce and added a lot of garlic. To get more zest, I added fresh bacon bits. Great for cheese lovers.

what a big time hassle to make. this took me an hour and 15 minutes to put together. plus another 20 to bake. then it was just kinda blah tasting. definitely would never make again. it's just lacking something. it needs more salt- that helped. i hate going to the trouble to cook and try a new recipe, then it sucks. turns me off on cooking altogether.

I usually do not leave negative reviews but I really have to say this was terribly bland. It would probably be better off served to toddlers. I would not make it again but I would advise anyone who did make this to 1. use parm instead of asiago, much stronger taste, 2. at least double the garlic and salt, 3. add more brocoli and less pasta. Other than that I have nothing. Sorry Cooking Light, you missed the mark ont this one! I will stick to my usual Chix Broc and Ziti recipe going forward.
