My family loved this dish. I will add more of the cooking water next time as it got a bit dry as time went by. I wasn't quite sure about the directions. I also did not add the mushrooms as no one likes them.

Wow, I feel like we're back in St. Louis and eating on "the Hill" (the Italian section of the city). This is a classic recipe for restaurants there. I used large shells in St. Louis tradition, increased the garlic, and omitted the mushrooms (kids). Letting it sit really lets the sauce soak in and flavor the pasta. My 13 y/o said it's his second favorite meal ever!

I am so glad to see this on here, I used to work for Kohner Properties and we had our staff meetings there and we had this one time and I fell in love. Thanks :)

This recipe is truly an authentic St Louis "Hill" recipe. It tastes identical to the many restaraunts. Another great variation is to add zesty italian tomato sauce making a "pink" sauce. It is another way to enjoy this popular pasta favorite.

This is a great pasta recipe! I took it to a party, and everyone loved it! I substited large pasta shells for the fettucine. Either way, delicious!

This was the easiest and best tasting Pasta Con Broccoli I have ever fixed ! I didn't change a thing except used large shell noodles as that is what we like. Thankyou so much for the new and easy addition to my files !

Excellent, easy and quick. I used some leftover broccoli so this was even easier. Added some extra garlic and cheese as well.

This was delicious. I couldn't believe the kids ate it - they actually devoured it! I also added a splash of white wine and added some grilled chicken. Delicious!

This almost tastes EXACTLY like the Pasta Con Broccoli I order from Cunneto House of Pasta on the hill in st louis! It's my favorite dish, and I can't bring myself to order anything else. I am sooooo glad I found this!

This was awesome! So easy -- a one-pot wonder! I made this after a long day at work, and it came together so nicely. I didn't add the mushrooms just because I didn't have them on hand. This is a great keeper for the weeknight repitoire!
