With all my summer end of tomatoes & basil, this sounded like a good recipe. And for such a easy dish,it is very tasty. Something different for a change. I did add a bit of vodka, red peppers & parmesan. used only 1/2 # linguine. It was just right for the ammount of sauce. thanks Sandy, for a keeper.
