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!

This is a fabulous recipe. I make it every week and it's great for a diet. You can use lots of different vegetables and use up what you have at hand - I've done it with Kale or cabbage rather than broccoli and it's just great. Thanks for this recipe.

Very good texture, I used Campanelli, I will definitely use this or some derivative of this in the future.

I love the idea of this being low-fat, but it didn't have a lot of flavor and was somewhat bland for our taste. I think if I make this again, I will add twice as many veggies and add some extra spices to give it a kick. Also, I won't bake it as long as the recipe states, because the pasta on top got a little crispy.

I didn't choose this recipe for the low fat idea. Chose it because of a photo that was taken of it and it sounded very good as well. Came together fast. Next time I will add some salt though and I had to use dried basil, but can just imagine how much better it would taste with the fresh. :)

Very tasty! I made this for tonights dinner and it was a good all in one dish. I appreciate the low fat and sugar content. I had to use dried basil but I put it into the white sauce as it cooked and I think it was fine. Thank you for a good and healthy weeknight dinner.
