Delicious !! Added a zucchini fresh from the garden and some cheese at the end. I am posting a pic of the lovely fresh ingredients that went into this !

I did add in 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce with the rest of the ingredients to give it a little more consistency. No one knew the difference, and it gave something to cling to the pasta. We loved it and will have again!

I prefer my sauce a little more "saucy" so next time I may throw in some tomato paste or cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. Excellent flavors though. I did sub chili pepper flakes for the fresh chili (availability). Will use tonight. Dinner will be a chicken breast with black olive pasta sauce served atop creamy cheese polenta. YUM
