When I get a craving for homemade tomato sauce, I make a zesty batch to toss with chicken and veggies. The flavors do wonders for penne, too. —Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, MD

"We felt there was too much sauce for the amount of pasta. We'll make this again using 2 - 8 ounce cans with a 3rd can ready if needed. We liked the combination of chicken and roasted vegetables."

"I love the idea of this recipe, but the sauce was too thick and lacking in flavor. The sauce needed a little sugar to balance all the acidity from the tomato sauce. A little bit of red pepper flakes would be nice too. The chicken was perfect."
