Wish I had read the reviews before attempting this recipe. The whole wheat pasta is heavy fiber which is great but if you're not used to it then you are in for a shock. It is very, very heavy and usually some what harder than average noodle consistency. All in all this recipe was so bland, I really could not stand it. I even dumped Alfredo sauce on top of it but it made the whole thing between the noodles and the sauce so heavy and still pretty unappetizing. Kind of feel like I wasted money making this because I probably will throw it out before I can actually bare to eat it all.
Try vegtable broth and a Tbs. of lemon juice. You could also leave out the broth and water and just use the tbs of lemon juice to give it a vesty taste.
To make this a true vegetarian recipe you need to use vegetable or mushroom broth, not chicken broth.
Sounds good but a disaster for points on Weight Watchers! Is the nutritional info. accurate???
This is really easy and healthy. However, I agree that it really needs more flavor. I read the other review and added an extra clove of garlic and some oregano and it still seemed a bit bland. I would've added red pepper flakes but was cooking for others outside of my family and didn't want to make it spicy. I will make it again but jazz it up a bit more.
This recipe was very easy to prepare and healthy! It needs more flavor, however. I'll make it again because I liked the ease and the nutrients but I'm going to add more garlic and some oregano and a little pepper flakes to flavor it a bit more. I topped it with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano rather than the bread crumbs.
