    "Not to be sneezed at", o "nothing to be sneezed at", es la frase hecha. No es ninguna tontería. No es poca cosa. No es moco de pavo.
    Parecida a "not to be taken lightly". No es para tomar a la ligera.
    saludos

    "To be sneezed at" is normally used in the expression "nothing to be sneezed at" which means nothing to be ignored or nothing to be underrated.

    They offered me a salary of $100,000 per year. Hey, that's nothing to be sneezed at.

    Saludos.
