Had this with meow's tortellini and it was terrific. I did add a bit of crushed red pepper and cut back on the olive oil. So fast, so simple, so delicious!
We loved this! Fresh summer tomatoes and basil combined with lots of garlic made this delicious. I also added some red pepper flakes. My daughter thought it was like bruschetta on pasta. Will make again!
Wonderful. I loved it and it was just as good the next day. I did add a few crushed red pepper flakes as suggested. I will make this again and tell all my friends. Thanks for sharing.
So fresh tasting!
I'm a professional baker - but weirdly not an expert cook and I'm not sure what I did wrong but this turned out quite bland for me. My tomatoes wouldnt mix into the pasta and sat on the bottom of the bowl, and I used even more fresh basil than called for and still it was bland. I loved the taste of the fresh pram. cheese. But felt it needed something else.
The crushed red pepper flakes is a 'must'. Always use the best fresh grated parmesan cheese (not the bagged pre-shredded) and the ripest tomatoes. Children love it too! Our family enjoys this at least once a week as one of our 'meatless' meals.
This is such a fresh, delicious and EASY recipe!! I made it for the first time last week - and my family has been begging for it again - so round two tonight! Love it!
Yep! 5 stars...this was just like eating out at a restaurant. I used 1/3 cup oil, 4 cloves of garlic, and linguini because that was the pasta I had available. I also used 3 frozed basil cubes, but fresh would have been better. Lastly, I added a splash of good balsamic vinegar towards the end. My husband said "fresh gourmet italian". Thanks for making it easy.
Yum! A great summer meal. Topped it with grilled chicken.
So simple, yet so delicious! Wonderfully fresh and easy to make. I only used 8oz of pasta, and it was perfect. I think next time I will add another clove or two of garlic. Recently: I've tried this with about 1/8 cup sundried tomatoes....heavenly!! More recently: I tried a variation on this where I add about 1/4 c balsamic vinegar, and it's delish!
