  1. This is one of my favorite pasta dishes, also. My recipe differs only in the elimination of the cream and parmesan. If anyone wants to eliminate a bit of the fat and calories, the flavor will still be delicious. This is a wonderful pasta dish!
  2. This pasta dish was outstanding! What a terrific mix of vegetables, (all my favorites) and the sauce was just wonderful. The amount of gorgonzola specified in your recipe gave just the perfect blue cheese flavor without totally overpowering the rest of the dish. I will definately be making this again. Thank you!
  3. great tasting and fast, we ended up with more than 4 servings total (used more pasta I think) but it was still amazing and, even better, we had leftovers for lunch the next day. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Delicious! Light tasting, flavorful, interesting... just a wonderful dish! Thanks for this fabulous recipe. Will make again, for sure. Maybe next time we'll toss in some prosciutto (spelling??) to mix things up. Thanks!
  5. I made this recipe last night for a dinner party with friends. Needless to say, it was a SMASHING success. Not only will I make this many more times, but I am putting in my special recipe collection to ensure frequent use. Thanks so much for the excellent dish. :)

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
