    A good "base" recipe that can easily be elaborated on for taste or what you happen to have in your pantry. I had rotini pasta, which worked well but cooked faster than the 15 minutes alloted. I also only had plain diced tomatoes, but that was remedied by adding onion, garlic, salt and pepper to the beef, then italian spices to the tomatoes. Great one dish meal!  -  14 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really good! Quick, easy, and flavorful. I sauteed some garlic and onions, and then added some fresh basil and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. I also substituted Fontinella for the parmesan....perfect!  -  12 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The recipe is the best! Makes a ton of food and has all four food groups! I substituted broccoli for zucchini and it was yummers.  -  09 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
