This was one of those wonderful recipes that you are a little sceptical about as you put it together. I was making it thinking 'This is far to basic to be anything remarkable, tasty sure, but nothing out of this world.' I was SO wrong... I took the first bite of this and everything JUST WORKED and made a simple yet perfectly balanced meal. I used to eat a lot of two minute noodles (Ramen) but got sick of all the preservatives etc. but I can imagine this would be a stellar replacement. Make a batch and keep it in the fridge for the 'just got home' munchies, not to mention an extremely quick and easy meal on those nights you want a break! I also sauted the onions with the garlic but everything else was as per the recipe. Thanks for an amazing recipe Kumquat! Made for ZWT5 Family Picks
So favorful and heathy!! Thanks for the goodness. I garnished the dish with fresh herbs!
Wow....I was so surprised by how much I liked this. I am not fond of 'chunks' in my sauces, and debated whether I would just blend the sauce after it simmered, but decided not to. I am so happy I didn't...this was wonderful. I used 2 red tomato, and one low-acid yellow tomato; also did not have the tarragon, so used a little thyme. Also, I sauted the onion and peppers with the garlic for 5 minutes before adding the broth. I served with fiori (wagon wheel) pasta in a bowl. I really liked the broth.
Very nice pasta dish. I halved the recipe for the two of us and used about 6 cloves of garlic and sauteed the onion with it before adding the stock. Very quick and easy, and you wouldn't know this was low fat unless you were told - thanks for posting!
I just loved this to pieces - very easy, ingredients always in stock and packed with flavor. After trying several fresh tomato sauces, I realized that I have a "thing" about the rawness, so I used canned and drained tomotoes instead. I think this made it a bit more soupy - which i loved. Others doing the same may want to cut the broth a touch or grab a nice hunk of bread to soak it up. The tarragon was an unusual addition but worked really well. Thanks Kumquat!
The herbs in this are just a lovely blend. I did use tarragon, and thought it went well with the other flavors. The only thing I would change is to saute the capsicum with the onion; mine turned just a bit soggy. I really like how healthy this recipe is, and it tastes so good you can't even tell! Thanks!
