Mrs. Jack gave me this recipe from Carrabba's since I had been looking for it and I appreciate her help. I am posting for safekeeping.

This is one of my FAVORITE dishes. I worked as a manager for Carrabba's for nearly 10 years. You have the recipe fairly accurate but you forgot one of the main ingredients. Rough chop about 8 basil leaves and add them at the very last minute to flavor the sauce. It makes a huge difference. I will also suggest using white pepper instead of black and use canned, whole Italian plum tomatoes and crush them in the sauce yourself. Enjoy this light and fabulous meal.
