Pretty and healthy, this looks like it came from an Italian restaurant. When I’m in a rush, I use a jarred tomato sauce and omit the tomatoes and seasonings. You can also fix this ahead and reheat it for convenience. —Nancy Deans, Acton, Maine

"If I had ordered this in a restaurant, I would have been totally satisfied. What a delicious meal."

"This recipe needs something. I liked the idea that it was healthy and quick, but it was rather tastless. As previous reviewer noted she is adding lemon juice. My husband suggested using Kalmata olives and maybe adding a quarter cup of liquid from the artichoke can to the vegetable mixture. It was just missing something. I will give it another shot with alterations."

"This was one my boyfriend picked out. He hated it and I thought it was just okay. For a healthy and quick meal it's not a bad choice but I've made better."
