Reviewed Pasta alla Formiana

Love Giada, but not this recipe! My family loves pasta, but agreed with me that the sauce was too overpowering for the dish (more like a paste and less of a sauce) and there was a lot of it. The pasta cooked fine and we liked the fresh tomatoes on top the best. There are so many other delicious pasta recipes that we won't make this one again."

Ugh... Disappointed, especially after the cost of the items ($7 for a little more than 1/2 the proscuitto, another $7 for the smoked mozzarella, etc.). I watched Giada make this with her aunt and thought how can this be bad with all these tasty ingredients, but sadly it was "vanilla" even with serving the sauce alongside. I followed the recipe "

This is fantastic!!! The recipe is so easy with excellent flavor. Nothing beats a grilled salad if you haven't tried one before - The depth of flavor is remarkable. Just a tip: Make sure to buy the bulk romaine, not romaine hearts in a bag. The pre-packaged romaines are too small and will fall apart when you cut them in half. Enjoy!!

The "At Home" cookbook version of this recipe calls for red potatoes which I prefer. I agree with other reviews in that the next go around I will cut back on the amount of salt, at least by 1 1/2 tsp. It is easier to cut the potatoes prior to boiling them, just keep checking for doneness. Otherwise, an easy recipe with good flavor!
