Great, easy sauce is right! I was hungry for something quick and hearty, and this did the trick! I used fresh basil snipped from my garden and served over rice noodles to make it gluten free. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 38

Made as written for The Quest 2014. This is indeed a tasty, satisfying, quick and easy-fix that I served w/meatballs and a side-salad. I will admit, however, that if I intended it to be my main meal of the day, I would prefer a protein with it (or in it). Without a protein, using black olives or mushrooms as optional adds would also add color and texture. A full bowl and a piece of garlic bread and I would be happy. Thx for sharing your recipe. :-)

This makes for a perfect weeknight meal. It requires minimal prep, comes together quickly, and tastes fresh and delicious. I loved how the basil really comes through in this dish and the kick the hot red pepper flakes lend. The only change DH and I made was to use linguine noodles as that was what we had on hand. Made for PAC Spring 2013.

I used a small onion and diced fresh tomatoes. They were very juicy so that was perfect. I didn't have tomato sauce so I used a little bit of Garden cocktail (vegetable juice). I topped mine with mozzarella cheese and red pepper flakes. It was so yummy with a fresh taste. Thanks LifeIsGood :) Made for Photo tag game

This was so quick, easy, and delicious! I accidentally forgot to buy the whole tomoatoes, so I used tomato puree and diced tomoatoes so had to up the seasonings to compensate but that was my fault and not the recipe's. Made this for ZWT7 Count Dracula and His Hot Bites. Thanks!

Spaghetti with a simple tomato sauce is my kids' favourite - and this version was very well-received today. It is a classic. Thanks.
