    This dish would be better without the honey. I'm not sure how adding more honey (raych32 comment) would make this better. The quarter cup is too much as it is. I would definitely use less, perhaps 1 teaspoon. If you have picky children and you were trying to get them to eat more herb based pasta, then this may help. I will not be making this again.

    It doesn't have a lot of flavor, but my picky younger brother loved it!

    My teenage daughter loves this dish! We add more honey, up to 1 cup to increase the flavor. Great side dish.

    Did not care for this dish at all. Kids did not like it either.
