Basil, mozzarella and tomatoes are superb in this pasta. Also added chicken, because why not? First recipe ever made in my MultiPot and definitely won’t be the last.

Added lots of red pepper flakes to my bowl. This was super good. I used a whole wheat pasta and paired it with garlic bread.

Yum!! So fast. Used fresh “Sweet 100” tomatoes and basil and spinach from the garden.

We tried it with the chili flakes and found it to be too spicy for us, so we tried it again and didn’t put any in. Much better the second time around for us. Great fast recipe!

This had a great flavor but do not make with gluten free pasta ☹️ it turned into a big pot of mash. Cindy

My young kids usually turn their little noses up at tomato sauce on pasta, but they all loved this! I was very happy with how quickly it came together and how the pasta was perfectly cooked. I subbed a mostly full jar or marinara and a can of diced tomatoes for the various tomato ingredients, and since I can’t have dairy, I sprinkled my serving with hemp hearts and nutritional yeast.
