Something else. I thought this was a great simple meal - easy to make and so good! I sauteed some garlic and onion first, added the tomatoes along with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp sugar, and some italian herbs and let simmer for about a half hour, then adding the beans, fresh basil and spinach. Absolutely delicious!! Will be making on a regular basis... mmmm... - 21 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. I used tagliatelli, Chicken Breast, and replaced beans with chopped Mushrooms and Peppers. I also followed advice of other tweaks and added a little salt, garlic(2 cloves) and onion, 1tbsp of oregano and Basil and 1 tsp Chilli powder. Yummy. - 20 Jul 2010

Used different ingredients. We loved this dish. I will make this over and over again. Super fast, easy and cheap! I made some changes. Sautéed a little onion and 3 cloves of garlic in olive oil, then added a little sherry and let it cook down. Added sliced black olives and had to use frozen spinach which I drained well and only used ½ of the bag. That worked fine. All I had was fettuccine so I tossed it with the tomato mixture and had to add a little chicken stock because it was a little dry. Excellent! - 21 Jul 2008
