    Terri F.'s Note:

    No creamy sauces to weigh this one down, this is my own creation, perfected over time. It's easy, it's quick, and the secret ingredient makes it all taste wonderful! Cleans out that veggie drawer, too! :o)

      An excellent primavera! Very easy to prepare. I love dishes with a lot of vegetables, and this one cetainly is that. I used green pepper, celery, snowpeas, carrots, and water chestnuts. I added 1 t red pepper flakes for a little bite, and used rotini.I also added 1/4 cup chicken broth to add volume to the sauce. The veggies were crunchy and the sauce was smooth. Lovely combination. Will make this a lot. Thank you for the recipe Terri!!

      This is a wonderful dish to serve in the spring and summer with fresh tomatoes and veggies. I make a very similar dish and thought I would try this one. I got rave reviews from all family members. The only thing I changed was to add just a splash of chardonnay. Thanks for another keeper!

      This was great. Really good for summer suppers. I used broccoli, carrots, and green peppers. We really enjoyed a new pasta dish. Thanks
