Making this for dinner tonight, ready for the healthy diet! Absolutely love the combination of spaghetti and broccoli.

Jewel Duning

Made this last night for my family, husband and kids loved it. Husband said it was restaurant quality food.

Erika Perri

30 Minutes wasn't enough for the pasta, could be that my stove just sucks. It ended up being too hard and I had to re-do it. But still a good recipe once I got the timing right. I would recommend the Harissa spaghetti instead though.

Maryam Tennesen

Followed the recipe step by step but swapped out the cheese to Mozzarella, it only added so much more to the flavor of this awesome dish.
