This is an excellent receipt! I went through other reviews before making it, and that made a big difference in my first experience! I did add 1/2 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning, I also did 2 teaspoons of the minced garlic. My husband added the crushed red peppers to his and said that really spiced it up and loved it! Over a cup of pasta which makes you feel more full! I added fresh lemon juice at the end. If adding pasta, I might try 1/4 c of broth for flavor instead of water, drizzle extra over.
