Both my husband and 4 year old daughter LOVE this recipe (my 4 yr old doesn't eat much). I made a few changes (as per other suggestions). Increased oil to 3-4 tbsp omitted thyme used 4 cups chopped tomatoes and 1/2 - 1 tsp salt. I sprinkle the salt on the tomatoes to help bring out the juices. As this recipe can be a little dry I also add approx. 2/3 cup chicken broth. I sprinkle parmesan cheese and toss and serve - EXCELLENT! We eat this often. Read More

This was very plain and very dry. It needs a good bit more olive oil or some butter. I don't think I'll make this one again. Read More

I added a little extra garlic - my husband walked into the house and swooned. It was delightful and fresh with the fresh tomatoes. Read More

This was good with my modifications; I mixed the olive oil with butter as others suggested; I used about a lb of pasta and still HALVED the spices in this... I mixed my canned diced tomatoes into the butter and olive oil and let simmer a few minutes to heat; added some shredded Parmesan cheese and served it on whole wheat spaghetti with a little Italian parsley on top...:) Read More

Pretty good nice and subtly flavored. Needs a little salt though and also a little extra olive oil. Also didn't use recommended amount of seasonings since I made much less than 1 lb. of linguine. I'll probably throw in a little grated Parmesan cheese and eat it with a side of organic spinach and breaded organic chicken cutlet. Read More

I thought this was okay but it seemed kind of dry. I used more garlic (about 4 big cloves) added some sliced mushrooms which I sauteed with the garlic and added feta cheese at the end with the tomatoes. I'd make this again it was quick and easy. Read More
