"This was tasty as is, but I would sauté fresh mushroom with some garlic to add a little more kick. The canned button mushroom were a little too rubbery and bland for my taste."

"Nice blend of flavors. We used a large tomato, which seemed about right. There was plenty of sauce to coat the veggies and pasta. Excellent recipe."
