"I had to use diced tomatoes instead of stewed because it's all I had. Unfortunately I also only had regular tomatoes not Italian, so I doubled the Italian seasoning. I feel like the recipe was lacking in flavor a bit because of this, but that's my fault. I used chicken broth. Also, I cut the recipe in half and it turned out well. An easy side dish! I'd make this again."

"Since I now live in a retirement community, I have my own apartment. I cook for myself. I used one can Italian stewed tomatoes & I crushed the Italian seasoning. I used 2 cups plain rotini pasta and this dish came out very nicely! I'd simmered the pasta just 15 minutes on the reduced heat! Thank you for sharing this recipe! It's a great way to use up pantry items such as canned tomatoes and canned chicken broth-of course the Italian seasoning and oil which I have on hand! delowenstein"

"Too easy! Very good flavor. I had use beef broth since that is all I had available. It went well with whole wheat pasta and a sprinkle of fresh parm cheese. The chunky tomatoes make this dish delicious."
