Really pleased I've discovered this recipe - I love one-dish meals that use ingredients you generally have on hand. It's a cross between a pasta bake and an omelette.

Not bad - slightly bland - not convinced by the quantities though - 4 people - I used extra eggs and pasta and it only seemed to serve 2.

This went down well. It is basically like a pasta omlette but it made a change to the usual pasta bake. I used mixed herbs as Idid not have lemon thyme. I will probably make again as it is a great store cupboard standby.

i am a total novice at cooking but i managed this. i used brown pasta and it worked well. Even my hungover boyfriend enjoyed it:)

Disappointing. I didn't care for the lemon thyme, and the dish was otherwise a bit bland. The family ate it, but with no real enthusiasm. Not one I'll make again.

This was lovely, I used green beans, mushrooms & baby corn instead. My eight year old wants to know when im making it again! Thats a thumbs up then.

Simple and quick, and made with store cupboard standbys. I would make it again!

Needs more pasta and something, maybe chilli for a bit more flavour.

Very easy to make and with a slight adjustment of quantities it works well. A very tasty meal - the addition of lemon thyme was excellent!

A really easy dish to make and a nice change from the usual tomatoey pastas. However the amount of pasta given in the recipe is definately not enough to serve four. I recommend using the same recipe with a higher quantity of pasta!

super easy and super tasty - use any vegetables you've got in the fridge! great, but i would say it doesn't quite serve four with the amounts given.
