The carrots and zucchini were undercooked and the pasta had an unpleasant gummy texture. I think if I did it again I would cook the pasta traditionally and add it at the end. We ate it for dinner but threw most of it away. I used Rao’s sauce so that combined with the cost of all the cheeses made this a pretty expensive flop. It’s the first of Valerie’s recipes that I’ve not liked. Oh well. It happens.
