I had to really spice this one up because my family likes spicy. Used basil oregano garlic salt and romano cheese. Also grilled and marinated my chicken for more flavor! Next time I would use Italian tomatoes instead. Read More

Well I only followed the ingredients but not the quantity as I cooked according to my fridge's content:P. I used more vegetable and less chicken added red bell pepper instead of carrots and also used fresh tomato and a can of tomato paste. Added seasoning to my taste - sugar oregano basil lemon - used 4grains spaghetti and I really think this dish was delicious!! A very good base to work with!! Read More

i was worried about the crunchiness of some of the veggies like carrots so i simmered them with the onions. I also didnt have any summer squash so i doubled the zucchini. And used others suggestions of adding a little extar garlic and some red pepper flakes for a kick. I also didnt measure veggie quantity the more the merrier. WOW WAS THIS GOOD mmmmm tasty and healthy I ate leftovers daily for days. Read More
