    I'm having a hard time rating this recipe. I LOVE how healthy it is, but as written, I thought it turned out really bland. I needed doctor it up to get it to the point where I could serve it to my DH. I added a little balsamic vinegar to brighten it up, basil and Italian sausage seasoning for flavor. I went ahead and whirled it in the food processor to make it smooth. Now I can love the flavor AND how healthy it is. Oh...and I love that it was so simple to make. This was my experience and maybe it was the tomato paste or the veggie stock that I used that didn't measure up some how. I'm just thrilled that it all worked out in the end. Thanks for posting the recipe. I'll be making versions of this again.

    Delicious - protein pasta! I used veggie broth and added a fresh diced tomato. I rarely find this to be true but the seasoning on this was perfect!

    It was great once I spiced it up with some creole seasoning.

    I was looking for my copy of this recipe couldn't find it. Googled it and found this excellent comparison. I find you can add any veggies(chopped very small) I add celery and carrots and use low fat veggie broth. Delicious;) thank you
