    The first time I made this recipe, I followed it exactly. It was good, but a bit bland for my taste. The second time, I substituted a few things. First, I added sweet vidalia onions instead of ordinary white onion. I used diced tomatoes with basil and oregano instead of crushed tomatoes. I sauteed all the veggies except the tomatoes in olive oil along with mushrooms and black olives. I added the tomatoes near the end, just to warm through, along with a pinch each of red pepper flakes and italian seasoning. Also, i used radiatore instead of angel hair pasta just because I like it better. With a few changes, this was so good even my meat loving mother loved it! This is a new family staple.  -  12 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    After reading reviews, I added about a half cup of chopped fresh basil and parsley to the tomatos and let them sit while I prepared the rest of the dish. I also used olive oil instead of butter when heating the onion and garlic. I added a little more fresh basil to the zucchini & squash while they cooked. And I used wwhole heat penne pasta. My fiance and I thought this dish was very good. I'm still eating the left overs!  -  13 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great recipe...delicious! I made this recipe with a few minor modifications. I used one vidalia onion instead of a white onion, 1 (28 oz.) can diced basil oregano garlic tomatoes instead of crushed tomoates and 1/2 cup fresh basil and parsley chopped. I will definitely make this recipe again.  -  03 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
