Delicious! We were impressed with the flavour and even our toddler gobbled it down! Definitely benefits from a good parmesan!

I love a fast and easy pasta dish, especially one packed with veggies. Added extra lemon and pepper to punch up the flavor a bit.

I'm a big fan of this dish. I love home-made alfredo sauce and this is a simple way to do it. Asparagus is a great vegetable choice here, although I'm not sure the beans add much.

It was good but kind of bland. Needed more seasoning.
