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.

This was very good. The only changes I made was to use heirloom tomatoes rather than plum tomatoes. I also put the red pepper flakes & oregano in with the oil to bring out the flavor a bit & added about a 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking liquid to the sauce. Thanks for sharing.
