I made a few changes to suit our tastes and what fresh veggies we have right now. First I used both fresh tomatoes and fresh corn instead of canned. Also added about a 1/4 cup of water with 1/2 of a Knorr vegetable bullion cube dissolved and some fresh basil. Then put the entire sauce over pasta. Made for a very satisfying fresh summer meal (and a way to use up that zuchinni!!!) Oh and added some grated parm cheese on top too! Done this way I rate the recipe a 5! Read More

This recipe didn't turn out well for me. I substituted milk for the cream which was probably the reason it didn't work. I'll have to try it again sometime using cream. Read More

Wow! This is sooooo good. I added some yellow pepper and a half of a jalepano as well. Great flavor. I used fresh tomatoes from the garden instead of canned as well as the corn. Made a great sauce over bow tie pasta noodles. Read More

This is a great base recipe to make as a pasta dish. I used this recipe as a base and added a little here and there to make my own. I added in some chicken and extra seasonings and served over bow tie pasta. I loved all the veggies in it! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I thought this was a great dish... I varied on two ingredients and the result was great overall: in lieu of salt and pepper I added some "Greek" seasoning and some traditional Italian seasonings as well and I used the diced tomatoes that contain basil and oregano. A little time consuming but well worth the wait! A great recipe that I'll fix again! Read More

I substituted sweet yellow onion for the red and I added half a poblano chili roasted and diced. I served this recipe with pasta and Italian sausage. A guest who generally avoids vegetables went back for seconds! Read More

Used yellow onion instead of red fresh tomatoes instead of canned 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. I also added Italian Seasoning basil mushrooms & cream of mushroom soup. (Soup didn't make a huge difference though!) I love vegetarian dishes but my family and I all agreed it needed something..... we thought maybe ground turkey! Read More
