    I've had this in my recipe box for a while now and I finally got a chance to make it, it was a hit & miss in our house. My kids pushed the tomatoes to the side of their plates and I thought it was quite bland. I substituted penne and Parmesan. Don't think I would make this again.

    My husband and I both loved this recipe! Had a very fresh flavor. I made it as a side dish and it was very good. It was the first time I had ever used cavatappi and I fell in love with it, but then again, I adore pasta!
