4 Stars because the concept is so simple. Three for taste with the recipe as is. I had to double the spices because the first time I thought it was too blah (but I like LOTS of flavor). Next time I will also top with cheese and then it will definitely go in our rotation. Read More

I took others advice & put in more spices than it called for and maybe that was my bad. I have never had any luck with tomato based sauces before anyway so it could just be me but I would not recommend this recipe to anyone. Read More

This was pretty good. I prepared exactly to recipe instructions and the noodles were kind of mushy. I prefer a firmer pasta. Read More

This was delicious and super easy. I used 8oz of canned mushrooms and 1 cup of marinara sauce instead of plain tomato sauce (just because it's what I had on hand). I'm definitely adding this to our regular rotation and think there are lots of possibilities to customize it -- add sausage next time maybe? Read More

This was quick easy and so delicious! My husband had two plates and even our 5 year old daughter who NEVER finishes a meal ate her entire plate! I left out the onion since my daughter won't eat it and used 8 oz of mushrooms. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. My daughter thought there was a little too much pepper in it and I agreed that it was a little too much so next time I will cut back on it. This will be a regular at our house served with salad and rosemary french bread from the local bakery. Read More

I loved the one pot idea. I thought it was tangy and mushy. I wouldn't cook it as long again. Next time I will add a little more sugar and top with cheese. Read More

This was really good. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because it was a bit too sweet for us. Next time I make this I won't add the sugar. It is a 5/5 with no sugar. I use canned mushrooms and fresh garlic. Also I use a regular pot not a nonstick and haven't had any problem with sticking at all. Read More

I first made it as written and I agree with other reviewers it was pretty bland. I made this again with fresh tomatoes herbs garlic and added some zucchini from the garden and it was wonderful. This time I also added a pound of hot italian ground sausage for my meat loving husband but I'm sure with the fresh veges & herbs it would have been excellent without. Read More
