This is a delicious recipe. It's a nice departure from regular pasta sauce. I used leftover roasted ratatouille, added leftover cooked chicken, and a little jarred sauce. Will keep this recipe and have it again and again especially when the vegetables are at local farmstands!!!

Good flavor and texture. I used left over spaghetti squash to replace the pasta.

I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with enough sauce for 5 people but barely enough pasta for three. Delicious but needs a bit more pasta and can serve 5 people.

I added 1/2 lb of Italian sausage, and it made a great one-dish meal.

I make this recipe without the pasta and use it as a side dish. Yum!
