This was so good. It's also a really nice change of pace from regular spaghetti and sauce. I couldn't find the Italian style tomatoes, so I just used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning. Thanks for a great recipe.

We really enjoyed this simple to make pasta and cheese dish. I use a can of V-8 instead of the wine but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

This was so delicious! The flavor was fantastic. I threw in some onions and think that I will follow Bev's suggestion to add mushrooms next time, as well as get some bread as suggested in the recipe. Thanks for a great recipe!
