4.4 stars
(1901 reviews)
Here is a hearty pasta dish, perfect for a chilly SF night. Penne Rigate pasta tossed with a slow-cooked stew of red wine and tomato-braised beef with roasted butternut squash, fresh arugula leaves, a house-made arugula pesto, and freshly grated Pecorino Romano. All we can say is: Dig in!!

Too much fat on beef - dish had one piece of edible beef - the rest was fat.

Where was the beef!!!! I paid for a handful of pasta !! I notice quality is decreasing, I've been ordering for over three months and there is a downward trend.
3 Stars
Good flavor overall, but the meat was very dry

Beef was mostly fat.

Meat was all fat and grizzle
4 Stars
The sugo and pesto were delicious. Needs more pasta.

This is probably my favorite munchery dish so far. The pesto is bursting with flavor and the beef is fork tender. Ordered it twice this week!

Just an overwhelming mixture of too many intense flavors.

Loved the pasta, the meat was dry.
2 Stars
Beef was tough and did not seem to "flake" as usual.
5 Stars
I was really surprised about how good this was. This was the first Munchery meal we tried and I expected it to be "good for re-heated food" but it was really outstanding. It tasted great and was a healthy portion size.

4 Stars
Super yummy! I just wish there was more beef! Maybe next time :)

Thought it would be decent based on the component parts, but together they were awesome. The pesto is what makes the dish, it's some of the nicest pesto I've ever had.

Overall a little greasy, but still pretty satisfying
5 Stars
Very nice flavor
5 Stars
One of my fav meals anywhere! The meat sauce is incredibly delicious - tastes like it's been braising/simmering for days - and the pesto is a garlic bomb from heaven. Yum!!!
4 Stars
tasty and filling meal.
5 Stars
Brought this over to a vegetable-averse friend's house without telling him it had butternut squash in it. He thought it was delicious. This might be a good way for vegetable-fearing kids to eat them too.
4 Stars
The pest made it really tasty but the butternut squash was a strange element in the mix
5 Stars
Best meal on munchery. I ALWAYS order this when it's available.
5 Stars
Delicious! Thanks for including so much pesto and cheese
5 Stars
My favorite Munchery meal!
2 Stars
I had this once before and really enjoyed it. This time the flavors were still great but I got a large piece of fatty/grisly beef that was inedible which was disappointing.
4 Stars
Delish!!! Just a bit disappointed there wasn't more meat
5 Stars
Excellent. Super tender beef. Yummy sauce.
2 Stars
Flavors were good but there was only like 2 small pieces of meat which was a little disappointing. If there was more meat it would have been great!
2 Stars
Not a lot of meat..mostly noodles!
5 Stars
So good!! :)
4 Stars
It was tasty but something in the meal upset my stomach. Maybe the sauce or the cheese, I don't know...
3 Stars
The sugo/sauce was great but the penne was way overcooked and soggy.
5 Stars
Tasty, but the beef had quite a bit of fat on it. Otherwise, well done!
3 Stars
Not enough pasta! Come on Munchery, it's the cheapest ingredient in this meal.
1 Stars
Where's the beef?! This could've been good but it didn't come with any beef at all.
5 Stars
This dish was amazing, the flavors were complex and it smelled terrific. The parmesan and pesto really brought the dish together. It was a nice portion size too, I had a little left over!
5 Stars
This is absolutely cryptochronagunalite.
1 Stars
Pasta was overcooked. Portion was small and there was very little beef.
4 Stars
Great flavor, but really small portion this time around.
3 Stars
Sugo was very good. Pasta was mushy though.
5 Stars
Yum! Loved it.
2 Stars
I've enjoyed this before but the recent order was a joke- two tiny pcs beef (one being all fat) and three pcs butternut. Maybe four leaves of arugula. Kind of inconsistent..,
2 Stars
Disappointing since you only get 2 pieces of beef. One of them was fat. Why doesn't anyone look at the food they are packaging?
3 Stars
Flavor was great! But, I would have liked it a little thicker with more noodles..
4 Stars
Pretty good.
1 Stars
I was very disappointed in this I would not recommend this dish at all unless the portion is increased significantly, and the pasta cooked and seasoned properly.(at least a little salt and/or olive oil) something- anything.
1 Stars
Needs more meat
2 Stars
Small portion, with too little meat in sauce.
4 Stars
This dish is quite tasty....I wish that there was more beef!
5 Stars
Delicious, The meat was really tender and the mix of flavors was nice. Another great dish by Chef Levine.
5 Stars
Like mom would make :)
4 Stars
Absolutely delicious. Only complaint is there was hardly any beef and that was the best part.
4 Stars
1st order was great. Taste was fine on 2nd order (couple of weeks later), but only 2 tiny bits of beef. Should have been called Just Butternut Sugo. Pesto adds great flavor, but it's way yummier (and more honest advertising) when there's more beef.
4 Stars
Good!
4 Stars
Basic but tasty with the arugula pesto; more sugo would be better!
4 Stars
Tasty, big portion, I couldn't finish it all!
4 Stars
Excellent.

Too little beef and different amount of beef and pasta each time ordered.
5 Stars
We didn't know what to expect from this dish. We were delighted by the flavor. So much so we heated it and ate it without the pesto. Only note is: the pasta was to soft or weak. We had a hard time spearing it with a fork, it kept breaking.
5 Stars
Yum yum :) extremely delicious!!!!:)
5 Stars
Awesome
5 Stars
Have gotten this twice now, the 2nd time I split it with husband because the portion is huge, and great flavors!
5 Stars
Awesome!! Great meal

3 Stars
The pasta is good but the beef is tough
5 Stars
This is one of my favorites and I continue ordering it about once a week.
3 Stars
It was good but thought the portions of the pasta was bit small
5 Stars
This was so good, so rich & filling. I can't believe it was only around 500 calories...does that include the pesto & cheese?
5 Stars
Delicious! Although I felt like I should have had more pasta
5 Stars
This was delicious!
5 Stars
Really hearty and delicious! Absolutely 5 stars!

Best Munchery meal I've had so far. I wanted to save half for lunch but it was so good, I finished it all!
5 Stars
Wonderful mix of flavors and textures. We will reorder often.
2 Stars
It was a bit sweeter than I'd expected, and we ended up not finishing it.
5 Stars
I prefer the smaller pieces of beef U've used previously. But it's still a 5 star meal.
4 Stars
This tasted incredible! The only thing I would have changed is a little more meat and less pasta. Absolutely delicious.
2 Stars
Too salty for me
5 Stars
Soooo good!

4 Stars
Rich tasty tender meat.
5 Stars
I keep ordering this dish cuz it's that good. Keep up the good work.
2 Stars
Too spicy. Very little beef.
1 Stars
Thought sugo was slow cooked? The carrots were raw!
4 Stars
Really yummy flavor! Only suggestions would be to include more pasta (come on, it's cheap!) and cook it a little more al dente to keep it from getting overdone when reheating.
2 Stars
Very small serving relative to other servings of the same dish
5 Stars
Did not know what to expect, but these flavors really work well together. Would love a gluten free version so everyone in our family can enjoy it.
3 Stars
The flavor was delicious but the amount of noodles was incredibly small -- I had to cook & add more noodles of my own to make it a sufficient portion (& I don't have a big appetite). Plenty of sauce though.
5 Stars
This was an excellent dish! The meat was so tender and sauce had lots of flavor. Nice portion also. Have already reordered this item
5 Stars
Order this today! It was splendid. Flavorful, the beef was moist and the sauce was sublime. Reheated perfectly. Will order this again.
5 Stars
Chef Levine delivers yummy food once again!
5 Stars
thanks for doubling the amount of pasta this time. Excellent salad. Keep it up.
3 Stars
Overall a nice pasta dish. We always hold Muchery pasta dishes up against our all time favorite which is no longer available: Pork and Piquillo Pepper Ragu. Not a lot of butternut flavor here, but it adds body. Tasty pesto. Nice mellow rich flavors.
4 Stars
Yummy fall recipe
4 Stars
Very tasty. I could count the pieces of pasta, tho. Too few. Maybe my dish was the odd ball, but I'd definitely want more pasta next time.
