      This is easy and healthy. I rated it 4 stars as I felt it was a little acidic. I´m not sure what to add to counter the acidity. But all the same I liked it and would make again.

      Really great! I made a couple small changes though. Used green pepper instead of red, chicken broth instead of wine, add a can od fire-rosted diced tomatoes, a little tomato paste, and tomato puree, and simmered it till everything was just tender. We had it over linquine, with Parmesan and a mozzarella/provolone blend. Thanks!
