I used a shallot instead of onion and chicken broth instead of wine. I also added two cloves of garlic. This was a very good recipe. I would like to add grilled chicken next time.
Replaced asparagus with brocolli and added lots of spices and this turned out to be the best pasta Ive ever made. Quick, easy, delicious!

It is pretty bland. I had to add garlic salt to make it have some flavor.

Turned out great. Cooked it for a potluck dinner party. Everybody loved it-- no leftovers.

I feel the asparagus needed to be cooked and seasoned a different way. They didn't have much flavor and took away. I may make again, I'll grill or sauté with salt and pepper.

I added salt & basil to the sun-dried tomato mixture and it was the best pasta I've ever made. It was so flavorful that you do not have to cook any sort of meat to go with it. I didn't know it would be so good, so I made chicken to go with it and, if you cook the chicken in (storebought) pesto, it is truly an experience.

I've made this several times. My family loves this! I always add sautéed chicken & add a little more sun dried tomatoes.

I make this dish all the time :-) it's really good! tonight, I'm going to skip the wine & try it with chicken broth & I'm adding shrimp!

This is awesome! I made it for dinner and everyone loved it, even our picky residents! We added a little more wine because the onions seemed too dry, but otherwise we followed the recipe completely.
