    Amazing ! I added spinach to mine and I didn’t add the broccoli to the penne like that. I grilled my broccoli separate and seasoned it then added after the penne was cooked. I also used whole grain instead of whole wheat penne. Would definitely make again ( make sure to season your food :))

    It definitely took longer than 20 mins lol not a problem for me though wasnt in a hurry. My penne pasta turned out amazing ! Although for the vegetables I only used fresh tomato, zucchini, mush room, baby spinach, garlic, broccoli, half a lemon, cilantro & a little bit of the brasil green pesto, and used parmasean cheese instead. Olive oil as well with garlic power, onion powder, pepper & salt seasoning. I did not measure anything, I did everything my own way. I love it. First time !!!

    This was so easy and delicious. My grocery store isn’t well stocked so I used broccoli and sun dried tomatoes. My daughter really liked it. I’ll definitely make this again.

    This was quite tasty. I used reduced fat pesto and fat free feta. I also used canned roasted tomatoes with garlic. I didn’t have basil, but it didn’t need it.

    I used this as my meal prep lunch for the week. I had some cherry tomatoes i needed to use, sliced in 1/2 & tossed in last minute. Turned out great!

    Easy enough! I added some arugula at the last minute which was a nice touch for my tastes. Definitely will make again.

    It’s a keeper! New staple for us. Easy and fast and oh so good. The lemon pesto combo is perfect. Added mushrooms for extra fun, turned out great!

    Could’ve used more broccoli and and little less pesto but turned out great! Quick and easy and fast cleanup!

    This recipe worked great for me! It tasted delicious and my whole family loved it. Also great for hot or cold leftovers

    This recipe is so good. I took advice from past reviews and only use half of the lemon juice and it worked out well. Very refreshing. This will become a standard part of my vegetarian options

    Delicious and easy, even without the basil (I don’t have)
