DH and I enjoyed this easy, tasty recipe for lunch today. I liked that it contained ingredients that I typically have on hand and it was good comfort food for a cold day like today in Michigan. I used canned tomatoes, and made no modifications to the recipe. I liked the kick from the hot pepper flakes, the creaminess of the sauce, and the fresh parsley. This was very simple, but good. Thanks for posting. I would make this again.

This was amazingly good. The kick it gets from the pepper flakes is a wonderful contrast to the creaminess of the sauce. I used canned tomatoes as well, since it's only March, and good fresh tomatoes are still months away, but I didn't drain them. I used the suggestion of the reviwer who said they'd cook it longer with the canned tomatoes, adding another 10 minutes in step 5. They were much softer then, but still fairly chunky, so I used my immersion blender to get the texture that we like. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon each of dried basil and oregano in place of the parsley, but put it in when I gave the tomatoes another 10 minutes. As a last addition, I topped the pasta with sliced chicken breast to add a bit of protien to our meal. I will definately be using this one again!

Very easy recipe that uses ingredients I always have on hand. I used fresh tomatoes ans sprinkled fresh parmesan on top and it was delicious. My DH commented at least 3 times how much he liked it. Thanks for sharing your recipe Mirj!

Very easy and quite good. I used canned tomatoes. However I think I would cook it longer next time, since the tomatoes where not soft enough.

My daughter's comment when she tasted this was, "Mom, this is really good!" That is high praise from her as she is a very picky eater! It is a very easy dish to prepare. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden which made it even more special. You have another winner here, Mirjam!
