This is so quick and easy, and it's a meal good enough for a dinner party. I add a few red pepper flakes to mine.

Thanks for another GREAT recipe!! Instead of Plum Tomatoes..I used a can of the Petite Tomatoes (by Delmonte Veggies)& Instead of Bow Ties..I used Thin Spaghetti, broke into 3 pieces..! I let the spaghetti simmer in with the rest of ingredients for about 5 minutes to take up the taste of the broth..! This recipe was AWESOME!! NIKKI :)

This got mixed reviews at my house. I liked it but hubby didn't think it had much of a taste. I made it as directed other then I used petite diced canned tomatoes. I doubled the recipe but used a pound of bay scallops. My parm cheese clumped in this.
