I made a vegetarian version of this dish (omitted tuna & used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth) with whole wheat penne and it was just fantastic! The sauce is spicy and thick and is delicious with the mushrooms and olives. I will absolutely make this again, thanks Giada! ""

I expected to love this dish but unfortunately both the flavor and appearance were only so so for me. ""

Yet again Giada delivers with a simple, flavorful, and delicious recipe! I folded in even more fresh spinach and although I am a garlic lover it was indeed a bit strong so I will likely use 2 cloves next time, all in all a wonderful dish that I will definitely make again. ""

Great flavor and texture! Agreed that feta works nicely in this dish but I prefer the ricotta salata which is typically available at Whole Foods. ""

The polenta was a nice addition, I enjoyed the thickness of the broth with the veggies but in flavor this one fell a bit flat for me (although the next day the flavor did elevate a bit). ""

Loved the unique use of avocado and fresh lime in the pesto, and paired with the more traditional ingredients of arugula and basil just delicious! I would however have preferred a different nut over the sliced almonds so I think I will switch to pine nuts the next time I prepare this dish. ""

Very tasty, I cook with quinoa all of the time but this dish was so unique in its flavor making it a nice departure from the norm. The flavors of the vegetables work so well together and the pistachios add a nice crunch. Definitely one to make again! "
