    I made this recipe with whole wheat penne, substituted the canned tomatoes for fresh, and used more garlic. It's a very quick and easy dish! I might try this again with more veggies and some chili peppers to make it spicier! - 1/2/11

  • I make something very similar only I cut up fresh tomatoes and use bell peppers and red onions in it as well. Cook all of the veggies down together into a sauce and serve over the penne. Overall a delicious meal and one of our favorites! - 9/25/13

  • Easy, tasty recipe. I added spinach, would probably use a can of seasoned tomatoes instead of the regular ones and kalamata olives next time. I also used reduced fat feta instead of regular and used italian seasoning instead of basil. - 2/15/12

  • Just a question. If am measuring a box in terms of ounces or cups how many would 1/2 a box be? I made the recipe and it was amazing... but I wasn't too sure if I measured too much or something. ^ ^ Haha. Please help? - 3/20/10

    Reply from CHIIEDDY (6/2/10)
    a box is generally 13 oz for penne (whole wheat). 16 oz for plain. I generally use whole wheat when cooking. Remember, I created the recipe on the fly, so there weren't exact measurements. I eyeball it.

  • Delicious....changes I made

    Only 2 TBSP of oil
    Used grape tomotoes, halved in place of canned tomatoes
    Added sliced black olives, next time prob try kalamata
    also added some sliced purple cabbage for some crunch.

    Extremely easy to make and tastes awesome - 12/20/09

    I'm sure the olives are great... I hate olives, so I actually change recipes to omit them. :-)

  • I'm not a big fan of tomatoes so I used mushrooms instead. Worked like a charm. :o) I think next time I'd use more garlic than recommended, but otherwise this was quite good. I'll definitely make it again. - 10/5/09

    Reply from CHIIEDDY (6/2/10)
    I usually use a HEAPING teaspoon of garlic when my recipe calls for it. But I also eyeball measurements when creating so sometimes translating it to a written recipe is hard.

  • I used fire roasted diced tomatoes instead of plain and drained off some of their liquid. I also cooked the garlic & tomatoes in oil for about a minute before adding the pasta. It was like restaurant quality! Thanks for the great recipe! - 6/3/09

  • I think the 5 TBSP olive oil is a typo, as the "ingredient details" list 2 TBSP. Going to try this recipe with some modifications, additions (more veggies) and the lesser oil amount! - 6/1/09

  • Delicious! I substituted grape tomatoes instead of the can of regular tomatoes and I substituted Barilla whole grain penne for the regular penne. Very good. I highly recommend using grape tomatoes. Personally I think canned tomatoes are disgusting. - 1/10/08
