"I served with penne pasta, but will use rice next time since it wasn't very saucy. Still very tasty. I also added a bell pepper to the mix for a little more flavor."

"This is a wonderful recipe! I used a combination of zucchini & squash and served over linguini. Not only did it taste delicious, the colors of all the vegetables was very appealing. One of my guests who doesn't care for either zucchini or tomatoes loved this dish! Thanks for sharing!"
