      I hate to give this 3 stars but my family really didn't care for it. We had fresh peppers and zucchini from the garden that we used and went with fresh grated parmesan for the cheese. The kids didn't like it at all and DH and I thought it was ok, but that was after we added additional garlic, salt, pepper and cheese.

      Whats not to love about fresh veggies and pasta? The peppers and zucchini are yummy and the simple herb and cheese seasonings were right on. No need at all for any fat drenched sauce so this is not only great tasting, it's also very good for you. Made for Photo Tag.
