Bruschetta Pasta

"This is heaven, being able to sit down and eat a whole bowl of bruschetta! It is pasta though so there isn't the browned factor unless you put it in a casserole and broil it for a minute. It is awesome served with blackened chicken or garlic shrimp as well."

    No linguini in the pantry. So to save myself a trip to the store, I used two 8oz. packages of tortellini instead. A delicious way to use up some fresh tomatoes from the garden. My family really enjoyed this!

    So easy and quick to make and what flavour!! Amazing reviews from DH too and he doesn't typically like fresh tomatoes. This is to become a regular meal now. I added a bit of fine chopped red onion and a splash of balsamic vinegar to the bruschetta as it sat. We had steamed mussels on the side that we mixed in. This will be great to make up in a large quantity for guests too! Love that this is low sodium yet sooooo yummy. DH needs yummy low sodium meals. Thanks for posting this!

    Absolutely yummy! I did heat the sauce and added balsamic vinegar and garlic salt as well as extra garlic... it was thin but I had a big spoon and ate every drop of the broth portion. Served it without chicken or shrimp to my son and his friend... and just as I was clearing the table, one more friend popped in and he loved it too!

    I wasn't sold on this. I like Bruchetta and I like pasta but to me they didn't seem to work together. Maybe it's because the ingredients don't really combine well without any sort of sauce. It's just chunks of tomatoes and onion mixed in with the pasta. The taste was fine but overall I thought it didn't quite work. It was easy to make though, I like that.

    Followed the recipe to the letter, and added shrimp. No one loved it. Leftovers sat in the fridge for days. It just seemed to be lacking something. Sorry.

    We really enjoyed this, thank you. I did use garlic salt instead of regular because we are garlic fanatics. Also, I shredded about 1/2 a cup of parmesan and added it to the mixture while the pasta was still hot so it would melt in. Then I put some more on the table for people to top with. I think this would also be good if you added olives and used feta instead of parmesan. Thank you for the recipe!

    We had this tonight with chicken and it was so light and refreshing. I used bow tie pasta and chives instead of green onion. Every one enjoyed it. Thank you!
