    I added red onion and the next day added grilled chicken to the leftovers for lunch.

    @Katie~ Hi this is Chef Heather from Food on the Table. Great suggestion on adding the onion and grilled chicken. This sounds like a perfect dish for the warmer days of summer!

    I added balsamic vinegar and a touch of red wine vinegar to the olive oil mix. It was very yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

    Is that supposed to say 1/2 pound tomato? I really doubt it's 12 pounds of tomatoes!

    That's hilarious, Meagan! Dana, good catch on the tomato quantity... (Just for me, I'd probably use somewhat more than 1/2-pound of tomato, anyway, since I'm sure I'd use more than that just even making bruschetta for five people!) ;-)

    @Meagan- Thank you for pointing this typo out to us. I agree with Donna that I would use more than 1/2 a pound of tomatoes in this recipe. I have modified this recipe to show a more accurate amount.

    Good base recipe. I would add more tomatoes and I doubled the basil, pepper and garlic. The recipe as-is needs just a bit of kick.

    I added diced apples. Thanks for the grilled chicken suggestion. I'll try that with the leftovers.

    I just made this for supper, and it was very bland. Next time, I'll add the onion and more garlic and basil.

    You could sweat some onion and garlic to add to this to make it more flavorful. Also, cherry tomatoes would be great in this!

    I love recipes like this one! It makes dinner so easy. I bake the largest turkey I can get and cut it into cubes and freeze it for easy adding to this type of recipes. So nice to have when I forget to thaw meat. If you have a garden with garlic, basil, and tomatoes this recipe is very easy on the budget. Thanks for another great recipe.

    Would cook less pasta or add more dressing. Dish was good but a little bland. Needs more flavor which comes from dressing. Double dressing if using one entire box of noodles

    I added chicken to make it a quick, easy, and light meal. It was a hit even with my Lil picky eaters.
