As easy as it is filling and delicious, this Italian meal appeals to everyone—and they won’t even miss the meat. Serve with salad and hot French bread, and watch it disappear. —Vicky Palmer, Albuquerque, New Mexico

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2014

Super easy to make! I cut this recipe in half and used crushed tomatoes with basil so I substituted basil with dried Italian seasoning. Sauce was a bit sweet for my daughter's taste so may eliminate the sugar next time. This is quick to prepare so had plenty of time to make a salad to go with!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2012

Made half recipe. Followed recipe with 2 exceptions. 1) I added a small sweet red pepper, chopped. 2) I added 1/4 lb. of sweet Italian sausage cooked to one side of the dish (wife does not like meat). I used the wine. Next time I would add additional cheese (cheese lovers). This was simply/easy and very good.

It was very little work the oven did most of the work (good for after work). My husband loved the provolone cheese on top. I made half a recipe and it came out perfect - you could add veggies and meat or meat substitue as well and it would be great!

MY REVIEW

Was tempted to add meat, but was surprisingly pleased with the recipe as is. Very easy and quick as you don't have to precook the pasta.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2012

This was super easy and tasty. Picky-eater approved. I added pasta and boiled for about 6 minutes and reduced covered baking time to 35 minutes. I used chicken stock instead of wine and added half a can of olives. I made a half batch and it came out great.
