    This was so easy and so delicious. I used fresh spinach and 4 fresh tomatoes instead of a can of tomatoes. - 1/20/11

    Absolutely delicious; both hearty and savory. The recipe omitted 1tsp basil, and the fact that 1 lemon = 3 tbsp lemon juice. - 7/9/08

    This is really a pretty versatile recipe...a lot of ways it could be varied. I added some low sodium bacon for extra flavor. Besides, it's gluten free...yippee!! - 5/7/08

    Fabulous! I love it. It is so simple and I always seem to have these ingredients. I added roasted red pepper and the tomatoes were diced roasted garlic. - 5/4/08
