I found this recipe looking for something to use up a lot of my Bountiful Basket, so used fresh tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion, and then dried herbs with the plain tomato sauce I had. Also used bow-tie pasta, again, what I had on hand. Wonderful mix of flavors and groceries I actually stock, was a great treat I'd make again. :)

Great recipe, love it. I discovered it a few months ago, and have probalby made it 3 or 4 times already. I live alone, so I usually portion it out and freeze several and use them for lunches during the week.

My kids and husband can all be picky but everyone agreed on this meal, it was a big hit here and no one here likes to really try anything different.
