Convenient canned goods, tomato juice and a frozen pasta-vegetable medley make it flavorful and fast. But it's also flexible because you can use other ingredients, such as a different frozen pasta-vegetable blend. On occasion, I stir in shredded zucchini or yellow squash, too.—Brenda Jackson, Garden City, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 11, 2013

This was really good and I served it with the Savory Cheese Bread on the same page. I found the frozen pasta and veggies at Kroger. It was the Birdseye brand and only came in the 12 oz size so I added some extra frozen corn.

I have been making this recipe for over 10 years. I can only find the pasta broccoli with garlic sauce at Wal Mart now. I substitute the tomato juice with V8 juice for more flavor. I also use Hunt's fire roasted diced tomatoes instead of the original.
