Notes about this recipe

    I liked that this had a lot of veggies in, and I enjoyed the chicken/bacon/pinenut/balsamic topping. But the overall flavour of the pasta sauce itself was a bit meh. I used chopped tomatoes instead of passata.

    This was only so-so for us. I agree with the reviewer who stated she didn't like it because there was too much of a tomato flavour. I personally love a good tomato sauce but using the jarred passata that is only augmented by the micro minced mixed vegetables made for a very boring sauce. I also found that the thyme and the rosemary didn't work well with each other or the balsamic. On the whole this was really quite unimpressive. Plus as per usual with this book I didn't manage anything close to 15 minutes and you end up with two pots and a pan to wash after you are done cooking. I usually like Jamie's flavours but this recipe not so much and not so quick.

    This was a good quick dinner that packed quite a few vegetables into a basic pasta dish and seems to be pretty flexible in terms of veg and herbs used. (I would think you could make several types of variations based on what is on hand and your preference.) The vegetables really cook down into the sauce. I subbed red pepper flakes for the chili since I didn't have one, used an orange bell pepper instead of jarred roasted peppers, and couldn't find the pine nuts so omitted them.

    I liked this and my kids loved it (NB I modified the recipe) which means I'll probably make it again as it's a good healthy family meal. I felt there were rather a lot of ingredients and I didn't have/use them all but rather modified the recipe to suit me. I didn't have any courgettes or bacon and used tinned tomatoes in place of passata. I also left out the basalmic vinegar, chillis and pine nuts to simplify and make it more child-friendly.

    I like it that Jamie's pasta dishes are easy to make, but I didn't really like the flavour of this dish. I must say though that I don't really like anything too tomatoey.
