"No need to carefully measure ingredients here, just add to your taste bud's content--that's the beauty and fun of true cooking! I prepared this pretty much as directed using a good brand of canned San..." See more Marzano tomatoes (the best!) and added a glug of Chianti to the sauce. The aroma was mmmm, so good, and the dish itself was delicious, flavorful and the perfect accompaniment to the "Grilled Marinated Shrimp" I served with it. As an Italian gal used to Italian cooking and food, I can tell you this combination of typical Italian ingredients is pretty good stuff!"
"This was EXCELLENT! This had so many great flavors going on and everything went well together. Wonderful blend of textures too. I used the bacon grease and a splash of olive oil to sautee the onions, ..." See morepeppers, and garlic in. I used sun dried tomatoes instead. I cut this down to a couple of servings and it came out perfectly. I highly recommend this dish, it is fantastic."
"This is a keeper! It takes very little prep work other than roughly chopping veggies, contains staples I usually have on hand anyway, and the smell of the bacon and tomatoes cooking is heavenly! I e..." See moremptied the bacon grease to cut down on the fat but didn't clean the pan our before cooking the onions to keep some additional flavor. I also added a splash of red wine to make the flavor a little heartier and mushrooms for more texture. We were out of Parmesan, and it's just great even without cheese. My husband, a meat and potatoes kind of guy, loved this and had seconds (and he's on a diet!) I advise against using spaghetti noodles...the rotini or fusili make it easier to get the veggies and pasta together in one bite."
