this is a good basic recipe and i have made something like it several times before. I omit the pasta sauce flour and water (since i usually use frozen beans)...ADD 1/4 c chopped onions 1-2 garlic cloves 1/2 tsp of thyme 1/8 tsp chili powder (or to taste) 1/4 tsp cumin a sprinkling of pepper and garlic or onion salt to taste. sometimes i'll serve it with a baked potato but most of the time this is an all in one meal that takes 15 minutes in a pot! my hubby adds hot sauce to it once its in his bowl but other wise everyone loves this dish.

This was okay but nothing special -- might have been better with onions or garlic or something. Read More

This is a very good recipe although I did change it some. I increased the water to 2 cups and did not add the green beans to the sauce mixture as the family did not think the idea of green beans in tomato sauce would be very good and I had to agree. I served this over fluffy mashed potatoes. Read More

I thought this was a great basic recipe and easy. I was looking for something to make with diced tomatoes smoked sausage and rice because it was what I had in the house. I browned 14 oz of smoked sausage in 2tbsp butter and 1/2 tbsp minced garlic. I didn't use any tomato sauce so I only added 1/2 cup of water and also only 1/2 lbs of green beans and mine were frozen. I spiced it up with 1/2 Tbsp basil 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes. Served it over rice but it would be good over pasta too. It turned out great the only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because I altered it a bit! Read More

I thought this recipe was very tasty as did my husband. Its not anything gourmet but definitely very satisfying. I added a can of diced green chiles with the tomatoes and I think it had a nice flavor. I served it over brown rice with green beans on the side. Thanks for the recipe!:) Read More

Sorry but we really didn't care for this. While cooking it tasted very bland and added onion garlic salt and other spices just to give the sauce flavor. Not our Cup of tea. Read More
