I tried this recipe and it was super easy! It was a hit with the family. I tried to use ingredients that I had on hand with scallops, clams, shrimp, and mussels. I usually eyeball my measurements, but stuck to the main ingredients for the sauce. I didn't have diced tomatoes, but I did have a can of crushed stewed tomatoes that also had italian seasonings in it. Will definitely make it again and again! Thanks for sharing!

LIke other reviewers have stated this is a basic start up. If its too bland here's a solution....add more salt!!! Jeeze it isn't rocket science. Personally i would cook down the onion, add the garlic, stir in a little "white" wine, simmer for 5 min, add 6 chopped Roma tomatoes, 2 tbsp. of chopped capers, simmer another 5 min, add roughly chopped fresh spinach (about a cup) and cook for another 3-4 min. Then add some finishing salt to taste. Simple, easy and yummy.

I made it with spaghetti squash for a low carb option and it was FABULOUS. Stuck to the recipe but I added a little bit of garlic powder, simply because I love garlic. This is definitely a new fav.

One of my husbands favorite dishes. He said it tasted like restaurant food.

We loved this. Tasted like something you'd order at a fine Italian restaurant. This recipe is entering my list of favorites from this site. Yum.

Meh. Kinda bland for my taste, though it's a good base of a recipe to start from.

Made this for my Dad & family for his Fathers Day dinner-what a hit! I did add zucchini to the mix & just a dash of crushed red pepper, otherwise pretty much stayed with the recipe. It was so good! Will definitely be making this one again! Thanks for sharing!

I added in some black olives also, put the mushrooms in with the tomatoes and tossed the olives in with the shrimp at the end, more garlic too since we love it. It didn't need any cheese, we enjoyed the simplicity of the recipe, really great with fresh garden tomatoes and basil.
