    Altered ingredient amounts. As is, this recipe isn't good--there's no sauce and no flavour. To make this recipe AMAZING, double all the ingredients (other than the pasta) and add a chicken bullion cube. When adding the olive oil, add a few tablespoons of tomato paste and let the sauce come to a boil before adding the pasta. I've even added a litte heavy cream to the sauce and it's great that way too.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Loved the basic recipe but made a few changes for my preference and convenience. Used angel hair, dried basil instead of fresh, and cooked all the tomatoes, rather than reserving any for the top. I also increased the amount of mushrooms. This is one of the healthiest recipes I've ever made at this site.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was a fantastic recipe! I loved how healthy it all was and how the flavour of the veggies really came out. I added more cheese and salt than the recipe called for because it was kind of bland the first time I tried it, but otherwise, this is really great recipe that uses low-cost veggies and didn't take that long to make. Def. try again!  -  29 Sep 2008
