    Altered ingredient amounts. I added extra garlic and used fresh basil from my garden. I also added a cube of frozen spinach for extra goodness and the kids still loved it!  -  05 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I doubled this and froze extra portions. I will use when I don't have time to cook and serve with pasta or chicken. This recipe is truly delicious and versatile  -  30 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
