"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."

"This is how my grandmother made spaghetti (she used regular spaghetti noodles, ground beef and onions in her recipe). We always referred to it as "Grandma's Runny Spaghetti" when asking our mother to make it for dinner."
