I made this up and it tasted so good that I had to post it to remember what I did.

I too gave it 3 stars. The basic idea of it was really great! It was definitely a bit bland for me as well. Everyone has different tastes. Next time I'll probably add some kidney beans, a few cloves of garlic, some pinto beans, and maybe some diced green mild chiles. We used mini wagon wheel pasta since that's what my son eats. And we didn't add any more water after the tomato sauce and 3 cups. Would have been too much for us. Thank you for the awesome start of our own recipe!
