    This was wonderfully quick and easy to make - the only changes I made were that I shredded the zucchini, used canned petite diced tomatoes and added a tablespoon of fresh grated parmesan along with the basil. Will definitely make again!  -  31 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a great recipe especially because it's so open ended to put what you want in it. I followed the recipe pretty closely but I did add about twice the garlic, about a cup of mushrooms, a half cup of onion, a bit of crushed redpepper and two small chicken breasts very finely chopped. It turned out amazing and very filling. I could see the original recipe being a bit light for a main course but if you add the veggies you want it's very filling and even more healthy!  -  07 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was wonderful! It is now my most favorite pasta dish. I changed a couple of things: I used 4 Roma tomato's. I also used Bow Tie pasta as the veggie's blend much better with Bow Tie's than with small Angel Hair. But I LOVED it so much I made it twice in two days!!!! EXCELLENT!  -  11 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
