    KissaK1's Note:

    from The Washington Post, Nov. 14, 2007. Serve with steamed broccoli and feel free to toss some toasted, chopped walnuts on top. Haven't tried yet, but this sounds delicious -- and healthy to boot!

      This was delicious and a big hit with husband and kids. I substituted almond milk for cow's milk and dried tarragon for fresh sage. I also had no vegetable broth in the house (we are vegetarians), so I just used an equal amount of filtered water and a little extra sea salt. I also threw in some turmeric and cayenne pepper. Quite delicious!

      I have had this in my queue for quite awhile but finally tried it tonight. It was a lovely pasta dish and I will make it again for sure. I had to substitute dried sage for fresh and used whole wheat angel hair pasta but otherwise did as instructed. It is a nice vegetarian main dish or could be a nice side dish for a roast. Thanks for the recipe

      This was really lovely and rich. I used a kabocha squash and subbed heavy whipping cream for the lowfat milk (decadent, but it was all I had in the house!). It did need a fair amount of salt, I felt.
