      This had a great texture but, like others, I found it to be bland. I used a 13 oz box of rotini (instead of 16 oz) and upped the broccoli to 4 cups. I also used a whole green pepper (which was about 1 1/3 cups). I'm not sure what you could add to boost the flavor besides salt, but it definitely needed something.

      Really really gross...I put black olives, broccoli, onions, 5 large cloves of garlic, 4 tablespoons of dried basil, and mozzarella cheese on top. I had to add a lot of salt and even then it wasn't edible. Did not look anything like photographed sadly. I won't be making this again.

      We really liked this casserole, but i did change a few things. I needed to use some leftover chicken so i added 2 cups of chopped chicken after everything else was mixed.I also used a yellow bell pepper because they have a better flavor. Didn't have Parmesan cheese so i used mozzarella instead. Next time i will definitely use Parmesan for a stronger flavor. Also added seasoning salt after it was cooked for some more flavor and salt. Thanks for a great recipe!
