    This is really good; I used red onion, fresh tomatoes, and greek oregano from my garden, which gave it a little more spice;also used whole wheat linguine-a little too heavy with the beans. Next time I will use a lighter pasta or couscous, rice, etc. Very good flavor, will make again! - 7/14/09

    I loved this so much however next time I will leave out the pasta and use the mixture to make nachos, or stuff bell peppers or maybe top on a chicken breast. The mixture is awesome by itself. I drained each can half way, too soupy if you use all the liquid. Great stuff, huge hit at my house - 1/7/10

    I used the canned no-salt-added tomatoes and added my own Italian seasonings. I also sauteed 8 oz of fresh sliced mushrooms with the garlic. I portioned the pasta & tomato mixture into 6 containers, the extra juice will keep the pasta moist. I thought it was very good. - 9/27/09

    I just made this to heat later, because it was so easy! We are going to town, so I wanted to make sure I had something healthy. It is really good - 9/25/09

    Don't know what size cans to use for tomatoes & beans; or the frozen spinach. I will try this but will substitute fresh bok choy for spinach which I hate. Might cut this in half - sounds from other reviews like it doesn't reheat well & I usually want leftovers for lunch. - 9/21/09
