I REALLY liked this recipe and DH thought it was just OK. I think it was a texture and visual thing for him. I loved the flavor and textures. Even better that it's healthy, quick and economical. I know I'll be making it again for myself for sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Loved it! I left out the oil and did a dry saute, and the cheese. Other than that followed exactly. Thank you!

Very nice, Dancer! I halved some grape tomatoes and put in before the spaghetti, and it was perfect for us. Thanks for the great post!
