I made this using my Herbs de Provence that I got while visiting FT in France. (Woohoo!) It got a big thumbs up from the kids, too. Fast, easy, yummy & low fat.

This was a very nice dish that we all enjoyed. It was refreshing to have all those lovely fresh vegetables in this dish, too. I followed the recipe as written, except I used regular shell pasta (not whole wheat). And this was delicious. The herbes de Provence was a wonderful touch. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Elmotoo.

I made this using the Herbs de Provence that French Tart sent me in the last spice swap. This is a really fresh tasting dish. The recipe was reduced to 4 servings and I did use 2 chicken breasts for additional protein. Roma tomatoes with seeds removed were used to complete the dish. Made for *Aussie Swap*
WOW and uper WOW. The boys LOVED this and so did I as it tastes like a million and yet is made on a budget and a love of herbs. I could eat this almost everyday but I think the family might tire of it. Just purchased some wonderful aspaagas and wow did it soak up the flavors. I offered pasta and orzo as the base so the boys could choose their weapons. This is even better on day 2 and I got the leftovers! :-) Made for AUZ/NZ Swap 39
