We made this exactly as directed. It was wonderful and done in less than 15 min. Be sure to salt the pasta water and the sauce and taste both. For. More spice, you could add some red pepper flakes.

Don't understand the posts that said it had no flavor, we thought it was delicious and light. Will be making again!

Comfort food - reminds me of creamy tomato soup but better! So quick and easy too. Definitely adding to our regular rotation.

Fantastic! This was super easy to make and absolutely delicious. I made it with a can of Hunts tomato sauce and thought it might need some doctoring. It didn't. I would serve this to company and no question will make this again. This one is a keeper!

This was a huge hit with my family! Easy easy to make. I did use Peppar Vodka to give it the extra flavor boost that other reviewers mentioned.

Easy to make and delicious! Next time I might add some cracked red pepper for a little spice, but otherwise, it was awesome.

I thought this was a good recipe for a quick weeknight meal, but could maybe use a bit of spicing up. Might make my own marinara next time or at least sautee some onion before adding the garlic. We added red pepper flakes at the table and served with a side salad.
