Just finished eating this and it was delicious. I went to the supermarket planning to buy dried oregano and picked up everything but, so I used a few small squeezes of an Italian mixed herb paste I had in the fridge and I added some dried chilli flakes. I also added freshly grated parmesan after trying the pasta, and I think it definitely enhanced it. Was going to stir fry some chopped red onion along with the garlic, and probably will next time. Great recipe that was very much enjoyed by all. Will definitely make it again soon. Thanks. :)
made this tonight, mixed it altogether, and after it was cokked I sprinkled it with Parmesan. Excellent meal. My husband (who, unlike Kiwidutch's husband) hates pasta, drizzled it with tomato sauce and barbque sauce and said it was wonderfull ! I only made a half serve of the recipe, and that was enough for two casserole dishes, the other one will be given as a welcome home gift to a friend:) thanks susie
Loved the ingredients in this pasta dish, especially the pine nuts. I added some basil. Made for ZWT 4 - Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
