Ratings & Reviews




Added chorizo and shrimp, used a mix of shredded Italian cheese, and only had dried basil. But oh my, did we ever love it!! So easy to make too!


Everyone loved this dinner.




Added sliced canned artichokes to the sauce at the end and only had dried basil on hand. Angel hair pasta worked well.


EXCELLENT!!! I had a vegetarian friend over for dinner and it was the perfect solution Easy to make, its a hearty meal and inexpensive. I also like the ingredients are all things you would normally have in the house. I also added sauteed zucchini to our meal and served it with a caeaser salad and toasted garlic rolls.


Very tasty and easy to make! I added the chicken with the tomatoes. No need to go out for supper, I can cook better at home!


This was quite good, however I used canned tomatoes and wouldn't again. Would definitely stick with fresh. Also added chicken but would leave that out for a good, inexpensive meal on the weekdays.


My family loves this recipe. I use fresh (not cooked) chicken...increase the dressing to 1/2 cup & saute the chicken in the dressing before adding the tomatoes. I mix the shredded cheese in about 1-2 minutes before removing from the heat; toss everything together; and top each serving with grated parmesan cheese. Great reheated the next day as leftovers too.


Loved it! so much flavor. Yum!




I made this recipe for a group of friends and we all loved it ,I also added some Black olives .




i made this recipe for supper last night with chicken breast it was really good this is a light and healthy dish my family loved it thanks kraft


Very tasty and easy to make! I added a few chopped bell peppers and onions and it was very good. A nice light pasta that bursts with taste!


Delicious and easy to make!


I’ve made this recipe a few times and everyone loved it! It’s a great, quick, simple and healthy recipe for those weeknights where you really don’t want to cook but don’t want to resort to takeout. When I make this recipe, I add ½ cup of dressing and add two chopped green onions with about ½ teaspoon of garlic to my onions. Very good recipe!


I just made this on the weekend and it was so delicious. I also used a half cup of the dressing and combined 2 cups grape tomatoes with one regular chopped tomato. I also added a 6oz package of fresh baby spinach with the tomatoes in the pan and cooked until just wilted. I think next time I will add some hot pepper flakes, just to add a little spice. Very good!!


My husband and I really love this recipe. We increased the dressing to 1/2 cup for a little extra flavour. It's great for leftovers the next day.


Loved it!


I'd make it again but I would add herbs, and less onion. It was nice, but a little too bland on taste.


My wife and I both enjoyed this dish would make it again.


I made this and both my husband and really enjoyed it. We will definitely be making it again. I increased the dressing to 1/2 cup and it could have been more, but we had a fair bit of pasta. I also added sliced mushrooms and served it all with asparagus and thinly sliced pork loin. Mmmmmmm it was yummy!


Excellent! It was as good as a dinner from a fancy restaurant served with a side of garlic bread and wine...a perfect meal.


I make this ALL the time!!! it's really good with chicken too.


So easy to make and my husband said it's one of the best recipes I have made. It was delicious.


very good when people come over


Super quick and easy. Totally delicious!


Really good, this is a quick week night, vegetarian meal. I used fresh mozzerella (3 small balls) rather than shredded, just tore it up and tossed it in. You could also add a few cooked shrimp or cooked chicken if you wanted some meat in it. Definitely a keeper.


My family loved it. I doubled the dressing and put diced zucchini and shrimp in it as well.


This was amazing-so easy to make-so tasty-loved it


made for a tasty, light lunch


my husband is not a hugh fan of pasta, but when i made this it was a hit, amazing flavours. will add shrimp next time, thanks gitte


We all really loved this receipe and it's not high in calories


I make this all the time! We love it and it is really quick and easy to do.


Made this recipe several times and it is always a big hit.


This recipe rivals Knorrs frozen pasta dinner and alot less sodium.i've added mushroom,green pepper and even chicken or pork leftovers.It gets stunning reviews from everyone I've made it for.Add 2x the amount of sundried tomato dressing.



Awesome!! Didn't change a thing and will be making it again for sure!!



awesome with chicken




Absoloutely fantastic, and delicious the next day too!! Next time I will double the sauce though



This was a nice dish, made it with Kraft Signature Tomato and Oregano BBQ chicken & roasted red peppers. I didn't have the exact ingrediants so I used canned diced tomatoes drained & reg dried basil. I also doubled the sause. A little bland but good! The red peppers added a lot.


I sautéed some mushrooms and asparagus pieces with the onions and garlic. Also substituted fresh mozzarella cubed up and tossed with hot pasta so it got all melty.


I used herb and garlic flavoured cream cheese instead of plain and used Aylmer Accents stewed tomatoes (drained)as I had no fresh tomatoes on hand. I added ground chicken as well (cooked, cubed chicken would work too) and I topped with parmesan before serving! Got rave reviews from my entire family (even my picky 6 year old gobbled it up!)


very nice but could use sausage and mushrooms


Quick and yummy pasta recipe, although slightly bland. Tasted great at dinner and again the next day when I had the leftovers for lunch.



Meal was very good, used fresh tomatoes from my garden.Will make it again and spice it up a bit. Robert


I am usually pretty particular about my pasta and sauces. I love pasta and I really like full bodied tomatoe sauces and cream sauces. I was sceptical about this recipe, thinking it maybe to thin but I was totally amazed by it. It was probably one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had made at home. It truly rivals any of the fancy restraunt's pasta dishes that I have eaten. This one here is a keeper for sure, all I did was add a little more of the Dressing, it seemed not to be enough for the pasta I had.



I loved it! I let the onions sweat and caramelize, so tasty.


My children loved this recipe! I added bbq chicken to it.



Not often do recipes look as good in real life as they do in a picture but this one did!! I served it to company, looked great, tasted fantastic! I added lots more tomatoes.
