    It was delicious. So simple and far more tasty than it sounds with the basic and few ingredients it has in it. Don't change a thing, its perfect as it is!  -  04 Jan 2014


    I took the advice that others have written (thank you!) and added oregano, basil, and crushed red pepper. I substituted regular tomatoes for grape tomatoes, which I added at the last minute (if you cook them as long as you cook everything else they will be mushy). I also put in significantly more feta than the recipe recommends. With these changes, it was extremely delicious.  -  10 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great EASY recipe for all those fresh garden vegetables (with a few changes). I added oregano, basil, parsley, ground red pepper, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Without the spices it was bland. I used whole wheat penne pasta instead of spaghetti.  -  16 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
