"Delicious! I made a half recipe and used Italian tomatoes. My son likes it with a little cheese, Italian blend shreds or Parmesan, but I think it's wonderful either way. And so healthy-- especially with whole grain pasta! Great lunch idea, too!"
"Hated it. Threw out the leftovers. So bland and uninspired."
"Sooo good! I used two red onions and a whole box (16oz) of pasta! Not bland at all like others said. All the flavors went great with each other. Will be making this again!"
"This recipe was easy & convenient, since I also have all the ingredients on hand. Nice weeknight meal."
