    Surprisingly good, and very easy! I had about 2/3 of a cucumber and Madeira wine in my kitchen, so I substituted those for the zucchini and red wine. Madeira has a nice, sweet flavor that I like to use in pasta sauces, and it complemented the sweentess of the corn very well. My 2 1/2 year old daughter liked it too, but she loves pasta, so that's a given!  -  07 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made it with 2 cans of diced tomatoes (with garlic and italian seasoning, I think), and it was great!  -  28 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I like this recipe, however, I added shelled Pecans and omited the mushrooms, and I used tomato sauce for the sauce, I also added more vegies, and it turned out great  -  17 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
