I tried this recipe a few days ago and it is awesome. My husband loved it and my 2 yr. old ate everything on her plate. I added freash zucchini yellow squash cherry tomatoes and 1 red pepper yellow pepper and orange pepper and mushrooms in place of the frozen vegetables. I grilled the vegetables in a wok rack on our outside grill with Italian dressing. I marinated the vegetables in the frig. first for about 30 min. And the vegetables are better the next day for leftovers ----if-- there's anything left over.Thanks so much for the recipe. It's a keeper. Read More

Sorry too bland for this girl. I would recommend some additional spices such as oregano and/or basil. Perhaps even use italian stewed tomatoes. But I'm not going to give this recipe a second chance to find out if there is improvement. There are many other recipes out there that are similar but have much more taste. Read More

Good recipe but it needed some more flavor for our family. I added italian seasoning and fresh rosemary to liven it up a little. I have also made it using different flavors of diced tomatoes such as the garlic and onion and the italian varities. It smells delicious when cooking and makes a filling main dish either by itself or by adding diced cooked chicken. Read More

I'm a teenaged vegetarian and I thought this recipe was really easy and quick but it didn't have much of a taste... it was good but kinda bland although I did leave out the onions mushrooms and salt because of my family's preference. Next time I will try some soy chicken in it... mmmm Read More

WOW! This was a very easy recipe to make and it tasted like something you would order at a restaurant. The next time I make it I will use fresh veggies to make it taste EVEN BETTER if that's possible. A great dish to make if your company are vegetarians. Read More

This recipie was delicious!!! I added a little more spaghetti than the recipie called for though. I'm just a beginning vegetarian so I'm not really used to a lot of veggies yet. At first I thought it would be too vegetable-y for me but it tasted GREAT! My mom loved it too. Even my brother who thinks that no meal is complete without meat liked it. Great recipie. Thanks!
