This dish was a huge hit with my pasta loving family, and something a little different from our typical red-sauce that we usually use. I actually chose to make it without the chicken simply because I didn’t have any thawed out, plus it made making this dish even faster!

One thing to note is to make sure you are using quality ingredients. A good olive oil, like Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, can make the difference in taste; as can fresh ingredients versus canned/processed.

    Thanks for letting me know it can be made without the meat or vegetarians! We are a vegetarian household, and this looks great! We have fake chicken that I think would go great with this. Thanks for the recipe! Reply

    Sound good to me. I would probably add the chicken though. I am a chicken freak. It's about the only meat I eat. Reply

    My default pasta sauce is the usual marinara. This looks like a great change from that, as well as an easy way to get some veggies on our plates. Thanks for the recipe! Reply
