*Update: Husband loves it. He just got his third helping.
I made it as directed with the exception of adding a little crushed red pepper. It wasn't bad but it just wasn't that good. I really wanted to like it based on the ingredients.
Agree with previous reviews. I did use dried pasta and cooked it longer to ensure it was tender and as much as I wanted to love it, it was lacking flavor. Even a sprinkling of red pepper flakes didn't really help. I'm sure lunch will be better, but as my family said, "You've made better pasta dishes, mom."
I thought this was a little bland - the ingredients would have been better on a pizza, not mixed together in a pasta dish! I used really high-quality ingredients and thought they would stand out more that way.
We added more salt and pepper to taste after cooking and added about 1/2 cup torn, fresh basil. I used dry pasta and just added it in the pot with the cooking liquid. I followed the box directions and let it simmer in the broth and veggies for 13 minutes. The actual noodles were very flavorful. It did improve as leftovers for lunch!
Also, I should say it might be good to double the onion and maybe even add more garlic as well. You could barely tell they were in there.
