This is a great dish to dazzle company or your family. I usually serve it on a large platter surrounded with grilled chicken breast halves or tenders. They will think you have been slaving in the kitchen all day!!

I made tons of substitutions to suit my stock of what was on hand, and this was still superb. I can't wait to try it the way it's written. I used extra zucchini instead of broccoli, and artichoke hearts, quartered, instead of mushrooms. Also, I used olive oil instead of butter and evaporated skim milk instead of heavy cream -- substitutions I always make. Just excellent! It still tasted rich and delicious. My family gobbled it down. I would serve this to the most exacting company any time.

Good, but I looked for a more concentrated taste. A little bland.

My husband made this for dinner the other night and it was exquisite. Tender sauteed vegetables with delicious rich, cheesy pasta. A veggie and carb lovers delight. Recipe is excellent as is. Thanks Susie.
