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.
I have made this twice and both times I've doubled it. I also use a 28oz can of San Marzano plum tomatoes with most of the juices drained. I haven't had enough fresh basil on hand so I used freeze dried. My daughter's favorite dish at Carrabba's and she said it's perfect! One of the easiest meals I've ever made that didn't come out of a box or a bag!
What an easy and DELICIOUS recipe-tastes better than the restaurant!!! I made w/ canned tomatoes and added some grilled shrimp. Thank you, Kathie, for posting a great recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.
Very delicious! My kids loved it! I had some home grown tomatoes in the kitchen and used them instead of roma.
This was so delicious. I actually used 2 Roma tomatoes but didn't find they were very tasty so I put the extra ones away and added a small can of whole tomatoes. Was so much better. This is such a quick and delicious meal to put together. We loved it. Thanks for posting Kathie
