Absolutely fabulous! Used cayenne pepper instead of crushed red pepper for a little kick.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2012

I had never made Cioppino before so I didn't have anything to compare it to but I thought it was really good and it was so easy. Usually I try and follow the recipe the first time before tweaking it. But I was making this for my stepson so I left out the spinach and I also diluted the broth because I was afraid it might be to much tomato with the pasta sauce. So, I added a full can of chicken broth and probably 3/4 cup water instead of 1/4. It was a hit and I would definitely make it again.
