My husband, my mother, and I all thought this was really good. My tomatoes were unseasoned. So I added 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning as suggested by another reviewer. I thought this was a bit too much. Next time, I will add 1 teaspoon as suggested in the cook's notes. I doubled the garlic, and added 1/4 large onion, chopped, and 2 cans of mushrooms. I used whole wheat penne noodles that I cooked separately. I had fresh baby spinach on hand. So I weighed out 5 ounces and added it without chopping it. I had to break up a couple of clumps after it was cooked, but it worked out fine. So other than the added onion and mushrooms, I pretty much followed the recipe. I think it would have been just as good without the additions. For those of you who have the Ninja Cooking System, this is what I used to cook the entire meal except the noodles that were added after they were cooked and drained. By the way carcinogens form on meats only when cooked at a high temperature or when its overcooked or burned. Browning meats at a lower temperature is not harmful.
