This appealing, meatless main dish from Angela Strother of Gainesville, Florida is full of cheesy, tomato flavor. “If you want it saucier, add a bit of the reserved pasta water,” Angela suggests.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2011

This recipe was a little out of the norm for what I make my family but it was surprisingly good considering I hate tomatoes. I would definitely make this again, this recipe tasted very fresh and very simple. Only thing I did differently was I doubled the recipe.

This is a nice light easy dish that I always seem to have the ingredients on hand for. I made it for my Mom for supper one night and now she makes it for my Dad all the time.
