The first time I made this recipe, I followed it exactly. It was good, but a bit bland for my taste. The second time, I substituted a few things. First, I added sweet vidalia onions instead of ordinary white onion. I used diced tomatoes with basil and oregano instead of crushed tomatoes. I sauteed all the veggies except the tomatoes in olive oil along with mushrooms and black olives. I added the tomatoes near the end, just to warm through, along with a pinch each of red pepper flakes and italian seasoning. Also, i used radiatore instead of angel hair pasta just because I like it better. With a few changes, this was so good even my meat loving mother loved it! This is a new family staple.
This was pretty good. Needed a lot of modification, but the recipe was a good place to start.
After reading reviews, I added about a half cup of chopped fresh basil and parsley to the tomatos and let them sit while I prepared the rest of the dish. I also used olive oil instead of butter when heating the onion and garlic. I added a little more fresh basil to the zucchini & squash while they cooked. And I used wwhole heat penne pasta. My fiance and I thought this dish was very good. I'm still eating the left overs!
Great recipe...delicious! I made this recipe with a few minor modifications. I used one vidalia onion instead of a white onion, 1 (28 oz.) can diced basil oregano garlic tomatoes instead of crushed tomoates and 1/2 cup fresh basil and parsley chopped. I will definitely make this recipe again.
This was so good and refreshing! I didn't use the entire can of tomatoes and slightly more butter! Will make again!
nice light dish for summer....even for meat lovers! My husband asks for it every week!
This recipe has very nice subtle flavors. I skipped the butter and used olive oil in its place to lose the sat fat. Also added 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley. Very good.
Excellent! I used a quart of tomatoes that I canned last summer in place of the crushed tomatoes, omitted the butter and olive oil (the jar of tomatoes had plenty of liquid). I also substituted whole wheat linguine instead of angel hair pasta (sounded better to me). I added Italian seasonings. Hit the spot!
