Great recipe. We used shell pasta, and instead of plain tomatoes we added canned, diced tomatoes seasoned with garlic, oil, and vinegar. The tomatoes acted as the sauce, and added lots of flavor to the dish.

I took some advice from the last reviewer and made some modifications. I took ground mild italian sausage and made mini meat balls with them, ground them, and set them aside while I did the veggies. I added about a 1/2 cup of white wine with the veggies, lots of salt, some oregano, parsley, and basil, and used a can of italian stewed tomatoes (drained) instead of fresh. Topped it off with shreded parmesean and it was a hit! My husband and our dinner guests loved it. I'll definately make it again.
