This dish is plain and simple and that's what makes it so great!! I didn't have any mushrooms and I don't care for onions so I left those out. I used half of a green pepper and a couple of gypsy peppers but I think it would be great with red peppers too. I had some partial packages of whole wheat bowties and rotini so that's what I used. I was pleasantly surprised with the addition of the boullion and paprika. This is a healthy dish that you can whip up in a jiffy with staple ingredients - really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
For now I'm giving only 3 stars. I plan to try it again but will brown the veggies in a skillet to give the dish more taste. I added a lot more time in the microwave and the veggies were still crispy and my microwave has a good power. I used 1 large red pepper. I didn't like the addition of paprika. I decided to put the dish in the oven at broil to golden the cheese. But next time we'll add more cheese. Thanks Dreamer. Made for Beverage tag.
Delicious! Please forgive me, but I did make 2 changes. I sauteed my vegetables (not real fond of micro cooking) and used organic Rigatoni, as that is what I had on hand. I chose to use a green and yellow pepper as my choices. The cheese on top was a really nice addition. :)
This wonderful dish is a great way to get those veggies into your diet. I didn't use the whole wheat rigatoni because I already had regular in the pantry. I added some roasted garlic for my garlic-loving husband. The melted cheese really puts this dish over the top. It's a winner, Dreamer in Ontario.
Made for PAC 2007. This was a great nutritious fast dinner!! Couldn't fit an 11x7 baking dish in my microwave, so used a big bowl instead. Also, I cooked the mushrooms in a little bit of oil before adding to the mix. Thanks Dreamer - this is a keeper!! :)
