This was a great healthy quick supper after a long hot day at the playground and the pool with the kids, my husband ate 2 huge platefuls!I cooked the pasta with the tomatoes so it was not soupy at all since the pasta just soaked up the liquid. My daughter even liked it and she is picky.

I add extra Italian Seasoning. Great for a light summer dinner.

Pretty bland, and the sauce was too thin.
