      Simple and tasty, I would love this over pasta. I used Trader Joe's Tomato and Basil sauce. Made as written except for reducing the quantity . Made for Cruisin Culinary Queens for the 2014 Culinary Quest

      Love this recipe, only thing I changed was I used fire roasted tomatoes, onions and garlic to make sauce. Awesome!

      Lovely! Simple, so fresh tasting. I used herbs from the garden, sauce from our own tomatoes and the result was terrific. Thanks, Lori!
