This was wonderful!! I used over whole wheat spaghetti & my entire family loved it... even my picky eater. I also tried it again over Halibut & it was a huge hit. My daughter (who doesn't like fish) ate an entire piece. I will try it over baked chicken next. This will be a regular dish in our house. Read More

My husband said this was "interesting" but he liked it a lot. I added Feta to the sauce and tossed with penna. The sauce was a little salty so be careful about adding too much salt to your pasta it however was very good and we loved to sop up the left over with bread. I only simmered about 30 minutes but don't feel it caused the taste to suffer at all. Read More

I've never written a review but this pasta sauce very much deserve it. I cook every day(cause I enjoy it) and so I've tried tons of recipes. After I made this sauce couple nights ago I was speachless how good it tastes. My husband could not stop adding more to his plate and that says it all. I cooked it for an hour and a half. I think it is a long time of cooking it that it gives all the ingredients time to blend together to a fantastic flavor. Thank you for the incredible recipe. I will be making this dish again very soon. Read More

This was good. I forgot to cover mine while it was simmering and it was too chunky. If it were thinner it would have been better but that was my fault. I used feta and served it over pasta. Read More

This was truly amazing we loved it. We cooked cubed chicken breast along with the garlic and onion stirred penne pasta into the skillet. The blend of tomatoes capers and olives drove us out of our minds. We'll be making this again...and again... Read More
