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!


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.


This is good and easy. I added 2 cans diced tomatoes. Plus an extra 1/4 cup of light cream that I thckened and added toward the end. It was good with light cream
