    Both my husband and 4 year old daughter LOVE this recipe (my 4 yr old doesn't eat much). I made a few changes (as per other suggestions). Increased oil to 3-4 tbsp, omitted thyme used 4 cups chopped tomatoes and 1/2 - 1 tsp salt. I sprinkle the salt on the tomatoes to help bring out the juices. As this recipe can be a little dry, I also add approx. 2/3 cup chicken broth. I sprinkle parmesan cheese and toss and serve - EXCELLENT! We eat this often.  -  01 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added a little extra garlic - my husband walked into the house and swooned. It was delightful and fresh with the fresh tomatoes.  -  07 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was good with my modifications; I mixed the olive oil with butter as others suggested; I used about a lb of pasta and still HALVED the spices in this... I mixed my canned diced tomatoes into the butter and olive oil and let simmer a few minutes to heat; added some shredded Parmesan cheese and served it on whole wheat spaghetti with a little Italian parsley on top...  -  29 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
