This was a wonderful, light dish. I had to make a few changes. I couldn't find the roasted garlic rice vinegar, so I used their seasoned rice vinegar instead. I had some chicken breasts in the refrigerator that I needed to use and cut them into strips. Instead of serving on top of pasta, I mixed my bow tie pasta into the chicken mixture and served with shredded parm. cheese. Will make again.

This recipe sounded interesting. Had I known the "seasoned rice vinegar-roasted garlic" was sweetened, I wouldn't have tried it. The stewed tomatoes also have sugar. I don't like "sweet" entrees. I did add mushrooms w/chicken, onions & garlic, & some dry white wine to the tomatoes. I might try this again with regular rice vinegar and regular diced tomatoes.

Very fast and very good! Like others, I made a few substitutions due to limited cupboard inventory. I used diced tomatoes, made my own chicken tenders by slicing chicken breast, plain Nakano Rice Vinegar instead of Roasted Garlic. It turned out great! The chicken looked a little "pale" at first, but after adding the rice vinegar and keeping it on very high heat, (probably several minutes longer then suggested) it acquired a very appetizing browned color. Will definitely make again. (would also be good with sliced zucchini added with the onions, for those trying to slip undetected vegetables to their family).

This recipe is great however, I added a medium onion instead of the small one. I also eyed the basil and salt measure. The only thing I would do different next time is probably double up the sauce so there is more to serve with the pasta. My kids also loved it just make sure to cut up the tomatoes some so the picky ones don't see them.

I made this recipe tonight after I received it on "The recipe of the day" It was Delish!!! However I didn't have any Stewed tomatoes on hand, so I used a can of minced tomatoes and green chiles. It gave it a spicy kick, and everyone loved it! Also, I added a little bit more Garlic & Salt, because of my taste preference. MMMMMmmm.

This simple recipe makes a fantastic dish! I loved it!

I found it to be rather dry and bland. There was little "sauce" left after cooking over high heat. In addition, the large pieces of stewed tomatoes seemed out of balance with the size of pasta and chicken fingers. Perhaps diced tomatoes would work better. However, I doubt if I will make this recipe again.
