Please STOP INCLUDING PARMESAN in vegetarian recipes. It contains the remains of slaughtered calves and is clearly therefore NOT suitable for vegetarians. It isn't acceptable to serve this to someone who doesn't eat animals and recipes like this can cause a lot of confusion. Try using a vintage cheddar or 'Vegetarian Pasta Cheese' instead.

I've only recently started eating vegetarian options and I thought this was really tasty. I drizzled some good quality olive oil over before serving. It was cheap, quick, and easy so we'll be eating it again.

I reversed the 2 steps in the cooking method however as I like both my pasta and broccoli with a bit of bite to it. It says to use quick cook pasta (mine had a cook time of 4mins) then advises to cook the pasta for approx 7-12 mins depending on how you interpret the instructions.

This was a nice vegetarian meal, though a little bland in taste..

Couldn't afford Parmesan so went for a proletarian option instead and used Cheddar. Also used extra olive oil. Liked the meal, so did my flatmates. Hooray.

Nice.
Not being a vegetarian, I always approach non-meat dishes with a little hesitancy, however this one is really nice.

Couldn't find any fresh sage so used some dried sage.

I'll be cooking this again - quick and simple.
