Used 2 zucchinis sliced,, 1 big yellow squash cut into quarters, 1 onion, 1 green pepper, no mushrooms, and lots of garlic! Sauteed in olive oil instead of veg oil. Used some kind of tube pasta and seasonings as listed. Had cooked shrimp so just threw them in at the end to get warmed up. I loved it and my husband did too once he spiced it up with more red pepper flakes. Read More

A nice flavor! I doubled the veggies and used linguine instead of rigatoni. If you can use rock shrimp it makes it very simple. I would make it again! Read More

Came out delicious. No changes were made to the recipe. Just make sure to choose a pan large enough to hold all of the veggies and shrimp. Read More

A few changes I made to this recipe included 4 tomatoes fresh from the garden, in substitute of the canned tomatoes, along with a can of tomato sauce. I didn't have any mushrooms or zucchini but the yellow squash and green bell pepper were perfect. It's a bit of a spicy dish but the whole family still loved it. Also, instead of rigatoni noodles, I cooked casarecce pasta. Read More
