    I was a little wary of the parsnips and kale, but figured the caramelized onions and thyme would smooth things out - and they did. This is hearty, interesting and so very satisfying - a good solid vegetarian meal. thanks CL!

    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. Lots of interesting flavors and textures. Will definitely make again.

    A great, hearty vegetarian dinner. I used regular kale, it blended well with the caramelized onions and parsnips. It takes a little while to cook, but your house will smell so good!

    Pretty good recipe, I used water chesnuts instead of parsnips because I couldn't find any at the store and I wanted to keep that crunchy texture in. One complaint is that there wasn't a lot of the vegetable mix compared to the pasta. Next time I'll scale the pasta down.

    This is pretty good, but between the caramelized onions and parsnips, the dish was a bit too sweet for our tastes. A little bit of salty bacon would help balance the dish, but then of course it wouldn't be vegetarian any more. I used regular kale.
