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.

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.

This was really bland and dry. Too much onion and way too much pasta. Not enough garlic, basil, flavor, or sauce.
