Delicious! I omitted the carrots (didn't have any on hand) and added in sliced mushrooms, red pepper and a little fresh spinach that I had to use up along w/ the spinach and tomatoes. I used more than 1 clove of garlic, and just eyeballed the cheese until the sauce was the thickness that I wanted. The whole family gobbled this up! This is a great recipe to make when you have a lot of odd and end veggies in the fridge that need used up. I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
There were so many tomatoes the sauce turned pink. They didn't really add anything good to the dish either because they fell apart and added too much tartness. It's a good thing I checked on them because the brand I used had a much shorter cooking time.
I didn't have penne so I used noodles. can't eat asparagus so I use a 10 ounce bag of frozen vegetables then followed the directions it was very good. Thanks, Happy Cooking!
Came out looking colorful and tasted great. I liked how the tomatoes cut through the richness of the sauce. I used squash and zucchini instead of carrots, but everything else was the same. Very delicious, but I might use a little veggie stock/sauce mix next time if I'm not in the mood for a rich sauce.
Tastes as amazing as it looks. Had to substitute cooking wine 2 tablespoons and substituted rotini. Amazing!
Very yummy dish. Super easy to prepare and is a great addition to the menu. I added salt and pepper to taste but also added some hot pepper to give it a kick. Nice flavor and even the kids enjoyed it.
I didn't find the sauce thick enough, but the taste is good.
Awesome recipe. I didn't have asparagus so I put a yellow paprika instead and it was great!
