    This was such an easy & delicious dish! I'm not usually a big fresh-tomato fan, but I've been trying to expand my culinary horizons. I used Better Than Bouillon vegetable base in the water to pump up the flavor (and avoid needing to add additional salt and pepper at the end), but other than that, I followed the recipe as listed. I used the absolute cheapest pasta I could get, as I'm on a budget, and it still turned out phenomenal. The flavors are well-balanced (with just a little bit of spice from the red pepper flakes). I'll absolutely be making this again!

    I've been making this recipe (as written) for several years. I use Whole Foods organic linguine and it is always so good. Perfect to whip up for dinner guests. I can see why lower quality pasta might not work as well. Highly recommended.

    I was surprised by how simple this dish was! It ends up being very tasty and with a lot of flavor because of the garlic and basil.I think I might have added some more basil than the original recipe. Amazing for those nights when you don't feel like cooking or don't have much time.

    I am an 11 year old boy living in Singapore, I was surprised about the simplicity of this dish. Its really easy and it was big on flavour. I added some prawns, capsicum and mushrooms. I astonished my family. Even my mom did not know that pasta can be cooked like that. Thank you for sharing such and amazing recipe. Hope you have more coming my way! Ethan Ong, Singapore

    I have been an aficionado of this one-pot pasta dish for a couple of years. A truly good-tasting and good-looking for-company dinner. Makes it look like you know what you are doing. I serve it in a really big shallow bowl. So pretty and inviting. I DO increase the pasta to a whole pound, and the other ingredients appropriately. Often I add shrimp after the pot is done, with a cover on the pot, OFF the heat for a few minutes until the shrimp cook with just the residual heat form the already-done meal. So good

    I make this recipe at least twice a month. I make it exactly as written and its a hit every single time. My pasta has never turned out badly (slimy gluey etc) as others have commented. If you do what she says, you will have a wonderful result. Don't buy low quality pasta. Bon appetit.

      pinkjade2518: What brand pasta did you use? I have used two different high quality pastas and both times this came out very slimy and starchy. Thanks!
