This is perfect if you are searching for low-fat or low-carb recipes. My husband is doing low- carbs and I am doing low-fat/calories. I made these changes: 1 C. each peppers and onions, 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes with juice, 1C. spinach instead of green beans, (the green beans seemed out of place to me). Served mine over rice, his over low-carb pasta. We topped it with Parmesan cheese. We both really enjoyed this but thought it could have been a little "saucier". Next time will try adding 1/2 C. chicken broth and 1/2 C. tomato sauce and see if that does the trick, but there definitely will be a next time.

OK, I took some of the tips from others, including adding some chicken stock and it wasn't that dry. I don't think I'd make it again though.

This was a hit with my family. My husband, who dislikes mushrooms and green peppers, really liked it. He cleaned his plate, mushrooms and peppers included. My kids enjoyed it as well. I, like most moms, look for ways to include as many vegetables as I can in every meal. I also omitted the green beans. I used olive oil to saute the onions and garlic and added a can of tomato sauce for added liquid. For added color and veggies I included yellow and red peppers.

Fabulous and easy.. I made a few changes. I diced fresh roma tomatoes instead of using canned, used 1 c of chopped onion and 1/2 c chopped pepper. Recipe didn't specify what to sautee so I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The fresh veggies made it taste like something straight from the garden. Excellent recipes!

This recipe was very good and allowed me the chance to use my tomatoes out of the garden! My kids and husband also liked it, but I will double the tomatoes when I make it again (and add a little salt!) Was great with some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.

I really liked this. I added garlic and italian seasonings. I used asparagus instead of green beans! Quick and easy!

I made this in a rush before I had work and my fiance had class, it was so fast and I had nearly everything for the recipe already in my house! I loved it and he loved it!
