Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Very good, I just added 8 oz mushrooms because we like mushrooms.

i suggest not to rinse pasta, just drain and let it cool because if u drain it, rinse, and drain it again then your rinsing off some of the flavor of the pasta, i personally think its better without the pasta being rinsed and drained again.

still waiting to put my recipes into a category since they changed this website we cannot save our recipes into any category

Add shrimp or crabmeat and make a complete meal. I used half the broccoli and added the same amount of cauliflower. Family loved it.
