Fresh sauteed vegetables in creamy pasta sauce make this a delicious and easy dinner or dinner party meal.
I'm giving this recipe 4 stars because the first time I made it I thought it was good but needed improvement. Here are the changes I made to suit it more to my tastes and to make it a little healthier: reduced oil to 1/3 cup (don't reduce the oil too much, it adds to the richness!); added some chopped white onion; added more minced garlic; instead of pureed tomatoes, I opened a can of petite diced tomatoes and blended half of it, then added the blended tomatoes as well as the rest that were in the can; squeezed the juice of one small lemon into the sauce near the end to brighten the flavor a little. I thought it was really good! - 29 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious. Had I had some chicken handy, I would have added it...but it was good without it. Loved the fresh veggies and the only change I made was to toss in a few shakes of Italian seasoning and use fat free sour cream as opposed to cream since to me, it adds a lot of flavor. And I decreased the oil by a lot - don't think there is a need for a full 1/2 cup! Nice and simple, will use again. Thanks. - 20 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had to make some changes to due to the ingredients that I had on hand. I only had 2 portobella mushroom caps, so I sliced and cut them into bite size pieces. And I didn't have any canned tomatos so I chopped 2 small ones and put it in the food processor. Had I had the correct ingredients, this would have been little time consuming to make. I also used only 1/4 cup olive oil and half & half in an attempt to reduce calories. Because I didn't use heavy cream it didn't get as thick as it was supposed to, but the fresh veggies really stood out. It could still use a little tweaking to make it an awesome dish, but it definitely has the potential. - 23 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
