Review This Recipe
It was a hit !
Simple, quick even for a novice...Great way to use those fresh vegetables from our garden! I first stir-fried in EVOO one can of shredded chicken breast with a medium onion-chopped, and a can of mushroom pieces--season salt to taste. Set this aside once heated. Add this into the vegetables at the 4 minute mark of the 5 minutes.
a very healthy and yummy meal
This is super easy! I used whole wheat noodles though to cut down on the sodium in the prepackaged noodles. I also added hamburger meat for protein (you could use chicken) and used canned tomatoes instead. My husband LOVES this dish!
Great for toddlers
Our 17 month old granddaughter ate this like it was her favorite food. It was quick, easy and very tasty for adults and children alike.
My husband can't get enough of this dish. My mother even requests it frequently! When I can't get good tomatoes, I use canned.
Wonderful side dish
I used halved grape tomatoes in this dish and substituted mozarella cheese for the parmesan. It was absolutely delicious along side a mushroomed chicken dish. I am going to try making it as a cold pasta salad with the veggies uncooked.
This is a winning recipe for taste, ease of preparation, healthiness and flexibility. I served it on the side last night with a piece of lean pork steak, french bread, and a fruit cup. It went over great, and I store the leftovers in individual plastic containers for lunches or microwave snacks!
I added imitation crab to this recipe and also some V-8 juice (was a little dry). It was very good - I'll be making this again! It was even good as leftovers.
This was ok
I used 1/3 cup of basil in the jar and the taste was way too overbearing. I will try it again with fresh basil. I'm sure it will taste a whole lot better.
angel hair pasta with tomatoes
I love that kind of recipes, I added eggplant, mushrooms chopped black olives and grated sweet potato
I loved this recipe. It was very easy to make and worked well with substitutes, such as vermicilli noodles and canned diced tomatoes (marinara).
A Great Burst of Summer
My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. It was a great altenative to a box of pasta and a jar of sauce. This was a light and easy meal that was wonderful with a fresh loaf of Italian bread and lots of parmesan cheese.
ABSOLUTELY HEAVENLY. TRY COOKING SOME LARGE CHOPPED ONIONS WITH THE SQUASH AND ZUCCHINI. ALSO, DON'T CHINTZ ON THE PARMESAN. USE THE REAL GOOD PARMISANO REGGIANO. IT REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE. NONE OF THE STUFF FROM THE GREEN CAN!!!
Adjusting to change!
This was quite an adjustment. From tomato meat sauce and speghetti noodles to SQUASH, noodles and tomatoes, hmmmm...Yes this was a bit different, but good. I was surprised! Even my critical husband spoke very positive aboout this dish. I'll do it again. It gave a new option for Summer/Yelow Squash. I don't like zucchini so I doubled the squash. Try it...You never know!
