Top Review by MariaLuisa

I should have written this review in the summer; we were eating this dish at least once a week back then. But I didn't want the year to go by without congratulating you on this wonderful pasta. We loved the fresh tomato taste (I do peel my tomatoes -- hate peels). And the oregano gives the dish a real southern Italian flair.
