I tried this recipe and it was super easy! It was a hit with the family. I tried to use ingredients that I had on hand with scallops clams shrimp and mussels. I usually eyeball my measurements but stuck to the main ingredients for the sauce. I didn't have diced tomatoes but I did have a can of crushed stewed tomatoes that also had italian seasonings in it. Will definitely make it again and again! Thanks for sharing! Read More

LIke other reviewers have stated this is a basic start up. If its too bland here's a solution....add more salt!!! Jeeze it isn't rocket science. Personally i would cook down the onion, add the garlic, stir in a little "white" wine, simmer for 5 min, add 6 chopped Roma tomatoes, 2 tbsp. of chopped capers, simmer another 5 min, add roughly chopped fresh spinach (about a cup) and cook for another 3-4 min. Then add some finishing salt to taste. Simple, easy and yummy. Read More

I made it with spaghetti squash for a low carb option and it was FABULOUS. Stuck to the recipe but I added a little bit of garlic powder simply because I love garlic. This is definitely a new fav. Read More

This was really bland and dry. Too much onion and way too much pasta. Not enough garlic, basil, flavor, or sauce. Read More

Based on other reviews we doubled the spices added about 1 teaspoon of Italian spices. Also added fresh basil on top. I could still use more spice. Also cut down on the pasta to 10 oz for 4 servings. Will try again with more spices. Read More
