    This recipe isn't bad; for someone on WW, it's VERY filling (I used high-fibre pasta to make it even more so) but I found it bland. If I try it again I might add more vegetables, such as chopped red peppers.

    This was real good!! :) The only problem I had (and it's all my fault!) was that I added one cup of pasta ... so I was missing a bit of the sauce. All in all - would make it again as is!! Also added a bit of cheese on top! Thanks for sharing! :)
