"This is a very tomatoy Italian pasta dish with lots and lots of flavour! I got it out of a diet book published by one of Germany's most renowned women's magazine. So apart from tasting spectacular its also pretty healthy and good for you. :)"
Serving Size: 1 (455 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"Very good! So simple to make, fresh on the palate and from the garden used cherry tomatoes, brocolli, zuchinni, and rosemary. I used small shell pasta but this would be great with any type of ribbed pasta as it grabs and holds onto the flavors. I did reduce the olive oil as the dried tomatoes came inan olive oil jar so reduce equal to amount in jar. I doubled the recipe and it came out just right! Made for my mom, step dad, brother, sister, and myself and it was just the right amount. I think I will make this again and double it so I can have leftovers at home with hubby. I also think I would add somew garlic cloves to add some more texture to the dish although great as it I am a garlic lover. Served with a greek salad, fresh bread, and some feta on the side."
"Oh this is wonderful. A delicious dish of fresh vegetables mingled with pasta. The sun dried tomatoes add so much depth and flavor. I did use fresh rosemary and diced roma tomatoes in place of the cherry. The vegetables were cooked until crisp tender. This dish is really packed with flavor and something I look forward to making again during the hot summer ahead. Made for Aussie Swap."
"Delicious! I had some wagon wheel pasta, so used that. I too used sun dried tomatoes in herb oil. The fresh rosemary didn't look that good at the store, so had to use the dried. Also added diced fresh tomato instead of the cherry type. Since I prefer fresh over frozen broccoli, I used that. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)"
"I made this last night. It came together very quickly, even with my 11 year old stepdaughter chopping all the veggies (she's slowly gaining confidence in her knife skills). What a great way to get more veggies into the family! I didn't have any rosemary so I subbed oregano--other than that, I made as written and it was very tasty. My husband and I are chili heads so we sprinkled crushed red pepper flakes on it to give it a little extra oomph, but my stepdaughter said it was great as is. I served it with a chopped green salad and garlic bread. Lovely meal ready in under 30 minutes."
"A nice a light, refreshing healthy meal. I did add 1/4 red onions sliced. Used sun-dried tomatoes in herbed oil. For the salt and pepper I used Recipe #396007 which enhanced the rosemary and garlic even more, also adding more spices. I did saute all the veggies not boiling them as called for. Kept the pasta water for the pasta, did add some of the water to the dish. Topped with shaved parm. Thanks!"
"Very good -- made a few changes by using about half a package of sun-dried tomatoes and my frozen veggies contained both brocolli and caulflower. I also used 2 tomatoes cut up instead of cherry tomatoes. Doubled everything to serve 4 -- but it made lots which will be great for lunches. Thanks for sharing!"
"Hey we loved this! You will be as happy as a pillow on a big puffy bed when devouring this. I followed this to a tee- and truly think this is a wonderful dish! So quick to put together, and the colors amazing! The sauce was perfect for us, as we don't care for a ton of sauce. We prefer all the tastes come together, and it did. I did add S&P to taste, and used 3 garlic cloves. Heaven! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* Novembre 2009"
"*Reviewed for Aussie NZ Forum Recipe Swap Sept 09* This was an easy recipe to put together and mad for a great dinner with some baked chicken pieces on the side. I liked the sun-dried tomatoes and the cherry tomato halves together. Just personal preference I would have liked a little more sauce. Photo also being posted. Thanks Loula :)"
