  • I too, used diced tomatoes from a can and reduced the amount of crushed red pepper (to suit my wimpy taste buds) and was really pleased with how this dish came out. I will definitely make it again! What a great way to use up kidney beans without having to resort to chili again. - 3/4/12

  • This was delicious and easy for a quick, meatless dinner! I omitted the cherry tomatoes and pasta liquid and used a can of diced tomatoes instead. - 12/12/10
