This is wonderful and I would rate it 10 stars if I could! I made the full recipe so my husband and I will have another meal, possibly two, later in the week. The only tweaks I made were to add the basil to the sauce while it cooked and to reduce the amount of red pepper flakes by half. I can't eat real spicy foods and my husband can add all the extra peppers he wants at the table!
This is a great recipe that I have been making for years! I use 5 cloves of garlic instead of three.I also toss the basil in with the sauce while it simmers, to let it soften and infuse with the other flavors. Fresh spinach can be added at the end to get more veggies in our meals. Thanks for posting Milanz.
I used a slightly different version from epicurious (which I think was posted quite some time ago), which included a tablespoon of dried sage rather than the basil and one cup of cream. Delicious and somewhat decadent (with the cup of cream). Very easy to make and surprisingly quick.
